The first time I entered the redwoods, outside of Humboldt Redwoods State Park I felt like I had entered a fantasy book. Beams of sunlight penetrated the dense green canopy created by truly massive trees, and I felt very small. There are several parks that make up what we call Redwood National park, I'm not going to explain why, but... More

There is nothing that will prepare you for seeing a tree this big! They are majestic. It makes you feel pretty darn small to hug a tree and not nearly reach around!

The Ranger Station near Crescent City has very interesting exhibits. The site itself is located in an area where you get a sense of the diversity of the growth that exists under the canopy of the huge Sequoias and Redwoods. There are video shows of the growth of the forests and how lightening and fires are monitored via satellite. There... More

What a sense of mystery & awe. Nothing can prepare you for it. The unexpected silence, walking through these ancient giants! My sister still considers it one of our top experiences, and we have travelled all over the world. This is an outdoor cathedral.

"Don't forget your camera" and if you are still using rolls of film bring plenty with you because it will be very pricey here at the... More

You'll want to come back here, one trip is not enough! We went in a group of four and camped for four days. It was magic. I made a video about my trip, which really captures how special this place is! Take a look, visuals are amazing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPRz0USZRCM To sum up what we did, we camped in Prairie Creek and... More

Upon reaching Redwood National and State Parks, my first order of business was to stop by the visitors center at its entrance. (I also had to do a quick clothes change–anything that can spill on white will spill on white.) The rangers there gave me a map of the park and a couple of suggestions on routes based on the... More

This was an excellent place to visit if you are a lover of natural beauty. The trees and their history in this park are breathtaking. Must visit atleast once in a lifetime.

You can easily spend a day wandering around, dwarfed by these trees. Slightly touristy, but you can avoid that if you want. Bring your camera.
