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

From a seemingly endless coastline to majestic expanse of of redwoods, RNP has something for all hikers looking to enjoy nature. The park is less crowded than Yosemite and Sequoia so there if you desire solitude this may offer what you are looking for. This really is a beautiful area filled with scenic trails. For hikers looking for high altitude/elevation... More

If you are looking for superlative redwoods I would go elsewhere. Prairie Creek and Jedediah and even Del Note Coast all have more impressive and more easily accessible redwoods. Lady Bird Johnson Grove is alright. But the parking lot is small and often full in the summer. Redwood groves on ridges, like Lady Bird, tend to be smaller than those... More

If you make only one stop in Redwoods National Park, or if what you are driving keeps you from seeing anything else (many roads and trailheads are designated as "trailers and RVs not recommended" or even "prohibited") then make sure you stop at the Big Tree Wayside and take the short trail past, well, The Big Tree and some of...

Do not miss this ride. If you have a convertible, ride with the top down. Jaw dropping beauty of these giants.
