I had read before our trip to the Redwood Coast that RNP was not as impressive as some of the other parks. As a result, we ALMOST passed up this park. I'm so glad we didn't. Lady Bird Johnson Grove shrouded in fog and permeated by morning sunlight was surreal. Make sure you at least visit this grove if you're... More

This is a "Bucket List" destination. Being among these giant trees in such a peaceful and serene setting will drop your pulse and improve your blood pressure. It is awe inspiring and transcends the normal vacation destination to more of a spiritual journey. The entire Redwood coast from Phillipsville to Crescent City is a relaxing enjoyable experience.

We enjoy going to the redwoods and most recently visited it Labor Day Week-end 2014. We enjoyed hiking, picnics, taking photos, and enjoying seeing the Roosevelt Elk. This time best sighting for the elk was around the Lost Man Creek picnic and trail area.

The Drury Parkway in Prairie Creek State Park. Drive real slow and soak it in. Stout Grove in Jedediah Smith State Park. The trail is short enough for kids and old folks. A slight elevation change at the beginning but easy thereafter. Kids will love taking the river trail branch down to the Smith River across a small bridge over... More

Absolutely fabulous day trip. Spent three hours hiking, primarily up ocean view trail. Phenomenal NP. Trails are well kept, park talks extremely informative. The most beautiful NP we've ever been to, about 115+ over 50 years. Peaceful and awesome canopy. Quite, lots of information stops along the base trail. We'll kept and 3-4 Park Rangers available for Q&A. A must... More

Not my favorite National Park, and personally I liked the presentation at Muir Woods better. All things considered, this collection of the national park and the California state parks preserve the largest remaining tracts of redwood trees in the world. My impression of the whole place is that this park was assembled Frankenstein like from bits and pieces. And it... More
