Awesome trees! The forest is so ancient, and beautiful, it's quite unbelievable. Has to be on your bucket list.

This SP is the best place to see Redwoods, a lot of people head to the NP and miss this area - pure craziness as the best groves are here (with maybe the exception of Stout Grove in Jedediah SP). If you are driving down the Ave of Giants a brochure is provided on sites to stop at, ignore this... More

This short tour is a great way to see the Redwoods. We stopped at 3 of the listed places to take a walk. The walking path on all was easy.

This is one of those places you must see. The Avenue of Giants is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. Trees that soar 300 feet in the air, with bases that are indescribably large!! Just an amazing thing and highly recommended. Don't waste your money or time at the drive thru Shrine Tree..kind of a silly stop

California State Park Camping costs $35. You get lots for your money. Usually flush toilets, showers, great hiking and site seeing...our campsite had a hollowed-out redwood tree big enough to pitch a tent in. The redwood ecosystem is displayed through various exibits at the visitor center and is greatly increased my understanding of interdependence of life.

We spent most of a day exploring this section of the Redwood Coast on our way north and then in the end just had to do it again on the way back south. There is so much to see along the Avenue of the Giants. Fantastic groves of the tallest trees in the world. Little shops popping up unannounced along... More

There are redwoods, and there are Redwoods. There are trails right off Ave of the Giants, and even better, to the east of 101, in the more remote areas of the park. Walking in an old growth forest is uplifting and magical. The facilities at most campsites in this area were amazingly clean and updated, and there are plenty of... More

We slept in our Prius! Interesting..we actually got sleep! It was pitch black at nite. We didn't buy wood for fire. Got there too late. So...ended up in the back of the Prius as soon as it got dark. Beautiful Redwoods all around! Pretty clean facilities.

This is a great sight to see if you're on the hunt for redwood trees; the last part of the stretch is kinda boring so you might want to get back on 101 sooner.
