The park has a wonderful trail to walk around and gaze at the old growth redwoods. It is well maintained and truly an amazing experience. This was my first trip to California and I am so glad that this stop ended up on our itinerary. My husband and I truly were awe struck by the towering trees.

Redwoods! Theraangers made sure to tell us that these are "baby" redwoods, but they were beautiful and stunning nonetheless. Considering we didn't have much time and couldn't go far, this satisfied our redwood "craving."

This was a great day trip during our Big Sur honeymoon. Parking was incredibly close and convenient to the Redwood walkway. We spend several hours exploring and taking in everything.

This Park is beautiful and offers something for everyone. The campground is so green and peaceful. The facilities are clean and kept up. There are many hiking trails, some for horses, bikes and dogs as well. Lots of interesting history. The walk through the redwoods from the Visitor Center was a wonderful experience with several animal sightings.

Guests of the Ben Lomond Bungalow love the Redwoods, this park is within a mile of our vacation rental so we recommend it frequently. There are some trails that allow dogs on a leash and they are walks worth taking. I consider this park 2nd to Big Basin State Park up the road a few miles if you only have... More

Stayed a weekend in San Jose and noticed this attraction on TripAdvisor so made it a point to visit. I've been to the Muir Woods in Marin County, so I enjoyed walking through the Redwood Groves, so this was a must during my stay in Santa Cruz. I was pleasantly surprise with the park and thought the loop walk around... More

Great park with a beautiful store and museum and several pedestrian, bike and equestrian trails. It's amazing to see the moss growing amongst the beautiful redwood canopy

We stayed in the campground. It was so beautiful and peaceful. The sites were large and the amenities were clean and stocked. We were up early in the morning and had the same strong bleach smell in he bathrooms. It wasn't as exaggerated as the last reviewer put it. I prefer campground bathrooms clean so it was appreciated. Just be... More

The park features an easy, level walk through an amazing redwood grove. First thing in the morning we had it almost to ourselves. When we walked it again later in the day there were many families enjoying the easy hike. It's suffers some from the obnoxiously loud railroad nearby, so if that's running, don't expect peace and quiet. Be sure... More

I will tell you one thing that I can actually put into words; if you ever want to know how significant you are stand next to one of these Redwoods that have been around for thousands of years...you will find out real quick. This was an amazing experience that everyone should enjoy at least once in their lives. I really... More
