“Nice but the drive is not for the casual tourist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

1. Get turn-by turn directions, or you WILL get lost.
2. It's a gravel road and it might be closed for fire restrictions. More than once I have been skunked by closed gates.
3. Snow may be on the roads if you are going in winter/spring, so be sure you have a vehicle that can get through.

“Nice HIke to see some large trees”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2012

We spent the day hiking, and driving the car throguh the valley of giants. There are sign posts that tell you what you are seeing, and a nice foot bridge to cross while looking at the river down below. This was our first time visiting there.

The Valley of the Giants is a 51 acre parcel of land containing a stand of old-growth Douglas-fir and hemlock trees, many of which are more than 20 feet in circumference and nearly 200 feet tall. Some of the largest trees are between 400 and 450 years old. The largest tree, which blew down in a windstorm in 1981, was 35 feet in circumference and more than 600 years old.

In 1976, the Bureau of Land Management designated the site as an Outstanding Natural Area. The Valley of the Giants is located 30 miles west of Falls City via logging roads not suitable for passenger cars.
If you are a first-time visitor, do not travel without directions.
The trail loop is about 1.3 miles, beginning with a quick descent which ends at a steel bridge across the north fork of the Siletz River. Very steep and slippery trail in parts and always changing.
A amazing place that if you get a chance to see it you won't regret it.
