If you only can do one redwood forest in your life go here! There is so much to do, and see. The park even has some self guided tours through some of the old growth groves like "Founders Grove." Gives you some amazing information on the redwoods, age, height, weight, etc. I would recommend steering clear of drive though tree's... More

Big trees. I mean really, really big trees. They will take your breathe away. Its okay, go ahead and give them a hug.... I have spent nearly a combined month visiting this State park - and I have always enjoyed every trip. Not much in the way of information booths, but if the campground is open, there is some information... More

You can't help driving through these beautiful trees without feeling something magical. There really are no words. It is a feast for the eyes.

We have been to Humboldt Redwoods State Park several times, with our latest trip being August 2014. This is an excellent state park with a good visitor center. The movie there is quite interesting and an amazing story about the great flood in the area. There is a wonderful nature trail in the park which is worth doing; it is... More

This is one of my favorite places on the earth. We stayed at the Burlington campgrounds (warning, this camp ground has been here forever, the twists and turns are impressive: I wouldn't want to drive this with a huge travel trailer or rv. Our 19 foot was tricky enough). The giant trees seem to soak up light and sound, quietest... More

We drove up the Avenue of Giants on our way up the coast towards Oregon. The Avenue itself was nice but the best way to experience this park is to get out of your car and explore the different groves. We toured the Founder's Grove and the Rockefeller Grove which is located off of Mattole road. The Founder's Grove was... More

wonderful giants. Just knowing this area is the only place on the earth where these trees live and they are more than a thousand years old is heart felt. We appreciate all the efforts to protect these trees and the area and hope they will be here for another thousand years. Its easy to feel the "life" so large and... More

A wonderful place to see the redwoods. Get the Avenue of the Giants Auto Tour Map in the brochure box at either end of the park. There are stops with trails all along the 32 mile drive. Several stops reflect the flooding which has occurred in the area. It is hard to imagine a high water level 35 feet above... More

These trees are amazing! If you haven't been here, make plans now! The Visitor's Center has an extremely knowledgeable staff and the exhibits are very interesting. It wasn't hard to see some of the most amazing trees in just a short hike. We did the nature trail across from the Visitor's Center, the Rockefeller Loop and the Big Tree Loop.... More

This is a great place to see the majestic Redwoods. There are many areas to visit within the park; most every trail is a can't miss. We particularly liked the Rockefeller area. Plan on spending a little time (at least a half-day). You can drive through the area on the Avenue of the Giants, but if you have time, get... More
