We were so impressed with how many large trees are in this park!! We rode south along the Avenue of the Giants and stopped many times for photos. Each tree is unique in some way - with a burl here or a twist there.

We took this 31 mile drive thru the park. It is the old 101hwy. You go thru a lot of small towns along the way and in and of redwoods, but a nice drive. Lots of places to stop and the visitors center is a good stop. We had lunch at the avenue cafe and stopped at a little winery... More

This area has been on our bucket list for more than 10 years and we finally made it. We spent five days exploring this area and further north. Seeing these giants up close and in person left us in awe and wonder. To think how long they have survived and all the things that have happened in the world while... More

My wife wanted to see the redwoods, so we detoured 1,200 miles from Arizona to make the trip. It was worth every hour spent on the road. These trees are magnificent - it's hard to describe. Like seeing the Grand Canyon - pictures cannot do them justice. Please don't just drive the highway - get out and spend some time... More

What an amazing environment, helps one really step out of the normal if you are an urban dweller! Just looking up at the trees made me dizzy! A must see if you can make the trek! Bit off the beaten path, but well worth it. The air and greenery make it second to none from a naturalistic perspective. Make sure... More

I've been going here for the last thirty years or more. I go every year. It's got to be one of the most beautiful places in California. No traffic, nice people, good food, nice places to stay and the sights are breathtaking!

This is our favorite state park in the area and we always enjoy getting off road and hiking the woods. They have some very unique trees in this area and one we hit for pictures where a seat like growth comes out right off the main road. We each take turns even though it's pretty good sized. The creek area... More

Steeped in grand history, old-world elegance, beauty, service. Would have loved more time to explore area. A rich experience.
