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.

The Visitor's Center provided maps and cool gifts. We hiked 12 miles along the Bull Creek Flats Trail, and it was quiet, majestic, and with very few people.

No words for the acoustics, rustling peace, beauty, and humbling presence of these magnificent trees. Easy stop from 101 if you are driving through the area is Founder's Grove. Level walk, amazing retreat. Dyerville Giant fell years ago and is slowly being taken over as is the cycle in these forests. Amazing to stand next to a giant redwood and... More

If you like redwoods, take a hike anywhere in this park and enjoy trees that were already old when the first Europeans arrived.

HRSP is such an amazing place filled with wonders that can be found on no other place on Earth. Just walk into a redwood grove, look around and up, breathe in deeply, and be struck by awe. Commune with the tallest and some of the oldest living beings. Note the many shades of green and brown, the feel of the... More

As you wander around these woods, you will find yourself transported to the forest moon of Endor. Walking among these giant trees is a fairy tale experience. As we arrived, we saw a huge herd of Roosevelt elk from the highway. If you are familiar with photo spheres on your Android phone, this place is what they were invented for.... More
