I think that the views and the walk was very interesting, however, I was stood in the doorway of the café and I was about to get some food and drink. About to enter, a man that worked there slammed two posts infront of me! Asking why he did that he said that the café was shut at 5:30 and... More

What can you say when you are in nature's cathedral. Problems and the stresses of daily life disappear or seem immaterial as you wander through the tall giants enjoying the shafts of light, the ferns and the call of birds. Hasn't change since the first time I visited over 50 years prior...even the local attractions and cafes seemed the same!... More

One of the highlights of our two-week trip to California. Although we’ve seen pictures and heard these trees are amazing, nothing compares to actually seeing and walking through them yourself – just huge! Most of them wouldn’t fit in our camera view. They are so tall, you cannot see the top when looking up from the foot of the trees.... More

My two teenage kids and I visited here and enjoyed some beautiful hikes through the forests and were awed by the trees. We stayed in Hiouchi, which was very close to an entrance to both national and state parklands. Serene and simply awe-inspiring. Some amazing spots for trail running as well.

I like big trees. When I stand by the tall tree in the redwood national park, I feel myself is so tiny in this world. Most of the tall trees in the park are over 2000 years. It's very funny when you stand by the old trees that grew there before america was found. The trees look like have their... More

This is a spectacular place worth visiting if you are near to it. You will never see taller trees, and get a better perspective of how small we really are. Plan on hiking down the hills and hiking back. Perhaps may be a bit too difficult if you are not in good shape, but do it if you can, you... More

The Redwood forest is like a cathedral. There is such a sense of peace and tranquility that comes over you as you walk the forest floor. One can not describe in words or in pictures the beauty that awaits you in this piece of paradise. We drove the coast line down Oregon in to California and the Redwood National and... More

Living on the West coast and so close to this area is a gift. I've taken many trips to view these spectacular forests and they exceed my expectations each time. As my late husband was a Humboldt State alumni we made many trips with our kids to the area. Great hiking on good safe trails. Too many visits to list!

If you love redwoods and hiking through them, this is the place. Hike from the highway to the beach or along the streams, camp in the campgrounds, watch the elk and just enjoy the deep silence of a primal forest.
