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

The sites were nice and we just met the length restriction with our motorhome. Once parked you have allot of room on your site but most of the time I had my eyes looking up at the massive redwoods. I was told that some of the star wars footage was filmed about 40min away which made my day, dreaming of... More

We are in this area every summer and spend at least one day in this area. We take several of the walks available and have lunch in the Women's Federation Grove. There are flush toilets and a great view. Driving through the Avenue of the Giants is well worth it even if you don't have time for anything else. If... More

I always enjoy walking among the redwood and enjoying the majesty and serenity of the trees. We spent the majority of our time at the Founders Grove and viewing the Founders Tree, The trail there is not long and is flat. This area is known for all the large fallen redwood trees.

The drive was really good...best part the weather was very good...especially it was foggy when we crossed over the lake which really gave a nice view...should visit Founder's tree at founder's grove...albino trees could be found at women's grove but it was closed for the season probably due to rains...drive-thru tree at the end of drive seemed like a waste...
