Hidden Grove Loop Description

Hiking along the Hidden Grove Loop is an amazing adventure that will allow you to walk amongst living giants and experience the natural beauty of the old-growth forests in this area. The trail sets out from the side of the road and immediately enters into the dense tree cover, where you will be surrounded by giant, moss-cover cedar and hemlock trees and a thick underbrush that blankets the forest floor. Along the trail, there will also be a few exposed sections where you will be able to catch a break from the heavy cover of the forest and take in some views of surrounding hillsides and the nearby inlet. After working your way along the loop through the magical atmosphere of the forest, you will arrive back at the trailhead where you began your hike.
