Hiking to Redwood Grove in Yorba Linda, CA

The Redwood Grove in Brea’s Carbon Cayon Regional Park is an easy hike to take with the kiddos. While the grove is only 200-ish yards long it’s nice to see so many Redwoods in one spot without having to drive up to the mountains.

Random Tips from our visit

What we observed:

  • When you enter the regional park, make a right and go towards the volleyball courts. Park where the road ends. 
  • The hike to the redwood groves is about one mile long. It is a dirt pathway with no shade until you reach the redwood groves. If you plan to take photos, we recommend coming from the other side of the park 
  • The grove is about 2 football fields in length. 
  • It has a nice woodsy feel to it.


  • A place to see redwood groves in southern California.
  • A nice location to take professional photos. Please inquire about a photography permit.

Time spent:

  • 1 ½ hour

Stroller/Wagon friendly:

  • Yes, but you would need to push it through dirt and wood chips. 


  • Yes at the main park. We didn’t see any restrooms on the hike or at the redwood groves.

Covid-19 Precautions?

Face covering is required at all times except for children under the age of 2. Everyone did a great job social distancing and we felt safe taking our girls here.

Should you go?

Lake Shrine really is a peaceful place.  We enjoyed our time in the center.  The turtle/bird/fish food was a big hit with both of our girls, and they loved all the different colored flowers that were blooming during our visit.
