Cabin fever got you down? These trails are even better in the cold weather months.
Tall Trees Trail, CA (3.9 miles; easy)
This 3.9 mile round-trip offers low elevation gain but plenty of reason to crane your neck. You’ll be dwarfed by the world’s tallest trees, including the 367.8-foot Howard A. Libbey Tree, which is nearly twice the size of the Eiffel Tower. Find the beta here.
