Revealing the Locations of the Largest and Tallest Redwoods

1      Secret Redwoods Locations


I made my first visit to the coast redwoods parks in 2014.   I was always interested in the tall redwoods but really didn’t feel an urge to visit the parks until the point in time the tallest redwood tree was named but its location was kept secret.  The treasure hunt, if you will, intrigued me.

The book The Wild Trees, with its descriptions of the known and secret redwood trees and groves, certainly added interest as did the web sites and forums hinting about the location of Hyperion and the Atlas Grove and the Grove of Titans.

To be honest if the location of Hyperion was on a web site in 2014, I would not have traveled to the redwood parks.  Maybe I would have made it to the redwoods at some point in time in the same way I still want to visit Yosemite or the Giant Sequoia Groves or Yellowstone or the Little Big Horn area but maybe not.  It was the secrecy, the puzzle, and the treasure hunt that got me there.

Thanks for reading.
