If you follow people in a sunny day be careful it may take you more than an hour to get to the park. You can waze to there and it will save you long time. Once you get there be ready to look for a parking spot and locate the main entrance so you can walk less to the entrance.... More

This past summer we spent a few days among the redwoods for a family reunion. We love to visit different national parks and this one was breathtaking! The trees are amazing and beautiful. There are several nice drives and places to get out and walk. One of the highlights was seeing a bear on the side of the road. I... More

I love national parks, and I always wanted to visit this place. Pros: lots short distance trails for small kids. no entrance fee big trees, forest environment (totally refreshing) Cons: After spending one and 1/2 whole days, no other places left to see ( 2 days are probably good enough).

Amazing to see, wear good shoes and go onto there hiking trails or not. You can just walk around a short trail and see the Redwoods and the beautiful plants and animals. They have a gift shop and a lunch counter also. A must do if you are ever in Cal

Yes, they are big trees! They are also hauntingly beautiful in every detail. The landscape surrounding is pristine and quiet. Drive avenue of the giants as well if you have opportunity. Getting out and hiking is the most amazing part. Walking the length of one of these fallen mammoths or walking in and out of one of the many little... More

The Redwoods were even better than I had imagined- there aren't words to describe how beautiful and awesome it is to be surrounded by giant, towering trees. And it's not just a few big trees, you walk down the trails for miles and the trees just get bigger and bigger. Driving through the old growth forest is amazing, but being... More

we drove thru part of the RNP on our way down the coast to Disneyland. the park was pretty, i generallyLOVE the forest (from BC Canada) but this wasnt as impressive as I'd imagined it to be. Cathedral Grove on Vancouver island was MUCH better (although smaller) Not many spots to pull over or park if you desire -- also... More

Amazing place. Great for everyone. Couples can take a romantic walk, families can can enjoy the nature and history of the woods. Or go alone and find a quiet nook to sit and reflect.
