This big redwood is the 14th largest known coast redwood, in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park near Foothill Trail. Down the road from the visitor center. There is parking with a sign by the roadside for directions. 286 feet tall and a 23.7' dbh trunk. 28,619 ft cubic feet (2010).
It appears to be a curly redwood judging from a large piece of stem that fell down near it. One of the lower limbs can resemble a cuphandle on the left side looking at it from north to south. There are epiphytes growing on it including evergreen huckleberry.
This Sequoia sempervirens is just a little big larger than the giant redwood near Avenue of the Giants and Rockefeller Forest in the Bull Creek Flats area. This one in in Prairie Creek redwoods is more or less available to visit all year long, whereas the one down south can be inaccessible when the creek level rises in winter.
