Hike the Redwoods!

Did you know you can hike the Redwoods right here in Orange County? Carbon Canyon Regional Park has a ten-acre grove of Coastal Redwood trees. This grove of redwoods were planted in 1975 with many of the trees standing over 100 feet tall. Not bad being that this is far from their normal growing conditions in Northern California.
