If you have never seen the California Redwood trees, you must make a trip and see these phenomenal giants for yourself. Many of them are over 300 feet high and grow as straight as an arrow. Take the drive through the "Avenue of the Giants" and feel overwhelmed by the majesty of these wonderful treasures.

We stayed in Trinidad and spent one day traveling north and exploring the park. We found elk herds in the Little Red Schoolhouse area and then again in the fields near Orick. Truly amazing to watch them. The ranger at the visitor center got us oriented to the area. I had planned on seeing Gold Bluff's Beach and Fern Canyon,... More

A great drive when traveling along the far Northern California coast line. Great trees, elk, deer, bear, and a good visitor’s center.

Wasn't impressed. The trees are beautiful and huge but unlike glacier national park or yellowstone, there isn't a trail to go through the park. We stopped a ranger and asked about it and most of the park has to be seen by foot. Not a bad thing but we were hoping to drive through. The trees really are amazing and... More

This was part of our visit while in Lake Tahoe 08-16-23rd. We decided to get up that Friday morning to drive to Redwood to see what so many people were talking about big trees. When we finally arrived to Redwood National Forest we took a wrong turn but was able to get information from the camp site. There was a... More

The redwoods stretch for many many miles on both sides of the SR101 and SR1. We spent a couple of nights in Trinidad and toured the redwoods by car and walked a few of the trails. You are surrounded by trees reaching hundreds of feet into the sky and so wide that 4 of us, arms stretched could not reach... More

The park truly is enchanting. All the trails we hiked were so peaceful and refreshing. The trails were easy to follow and we felt very safe hiking. Pictures don't really do the park justice, so all the more reason to visit! The surrounding towns are very small and close to nonexistent so there isn't much to do other than the... More

We spent two days enjoying and photographing these amazing mammoth trees. We especially liked the area around the "Big Tree" on the Newton B Drury Parkway. The weather was perfect for us and in this particular area, we did not have any bug problems at all. However, when we went to the Lady Bird Johnson area, we were inundated with... More

We recently did some backcountry camping at Nickel Creek camp in the Redwood National Park. We will share our experience here. - The plus is that the camp site is only ½ mile hike from the parking lot at the dead end of Enderts Beach Road just south of Crescent City. - The minus is that the camp site is...
