I was really expecting greatness from all the reviews and pictures I had seen while doing research. However, after getting to the "park" I was sorely bummed. The park is not a "normal" park where special locations have access from the road. I wish the brochure and website would have stated that you have to hike, and I mean HIKE,... More

Words can not describe the enormity or the beauty of these amazing trees. You must see them to comprehend their size. There are drives through the groves our you van park and take various hikes.

We could not wait to see the Redwood National Park on our recent vacation. WOW. The roads were not crowded, peaceful, beautiful, stop and take pictures. Who can believe the Redwoods are that tall and large. Magnificent. Loved it.

The redwoods are something everyone should experience at least once in his/her lifetime. They are magestic and awe-inspiring and really put your life in perspective (how tiny humans are). Elk are abundant throughout the national park. The scenic highway is worth all of its twists and turns. Remember to drive slowly and take something medicinal if you get motion sickness.... More

A truly astounding site. Worth camping here or taking an extended hike through the trees. Some access can be limited during the winter months due to the removal of the bridges.

We went to the southernmost end of the park and started at the Kuchel Welcome Center. There was a picnic area right before the scenic highway and we stopped there and had our lunch and saw elk grazing in the field right next to where we ate. Then we took the scenic highway and were able to stop whenever we... More

One of the most awe inspiring places in America. The giant trees are spectacular. So beautiful! Take time to stop at the various locations. We took some short hikes and really enjoyed ourselves.

Worth visiting no matter just driving through or spending more time. Select some short trails to view big redwoods closely and their ecosystem. Stay at least one night near/in the park. Ranger is helpful to give you valuable advice based on your time. Take a map from them and go!

The trees are soooooo big they don't even seem real.....I can't believe how big they are and pictures do not do them justice......just like the Grand Canyon, you have to see it for yourself in person to appreciate how majestic nature is.......definitely worth the drive......a bucket list must.

Truly one of the most amazing places I have visited. To stand amongst the redwoods is sobering and a reminder of how insignificant we truly are. Standing there, looking up at these giants you are left to wonder what they have seen and experienced in there majestic lives. If only they could talk... The whole family loved the experience and...
