The Valley of the Ancients

The ancient forests at the Twisted Sister Grove
A Styx Valley giant Eucalyptus reaching for the sky
Hidden valleys surrounded by craggy mountains, waterfalls, and moorlands - the oldest, gnarliest, tallest groves, on the edge of the Wilderness Southwest. Meet the Giant Trees of the Styx Valley, home to many of the largest and oldest of the giants. Walk through the Giant Forest to the densely forested banks of the Styx River, named for the border of the Underworld. Visit the famous tree ferns and gum trees next to roaring Russell Falls. View the skyscrapers, the tallest grove of flowering plants anywhere on Earth. Meet the Twisted Sister, a gnarled and ancient gum tree unlike no other.
