These trees are fascinating! It is so beautiful and still here. It doesn't feel real. It is definitely one of the most beautiful and spectacular things I have seen in my lifetime. Pictures do not even begin to do these magnificent trees justice. The size of these trees is something you should definitely experience in person to get the full... More

We only explored on part of this park had to offer and we were not disappointed. We decided to take the scenic "Avenue of the Giants" SR 254 as an alternative when we driving north from Ukiah to Eureka. Depending on how one is pressed for time there are a couple of access points to the road from US 101.... More

Obviously we need to heed the advice of others and recognize that this location is a long way from San Francisco. Although we were told it took 4 hours, we did it in 3 1/2; but it was still a trip over often windy and hilly highway. Also being dumb, we thought the entrance would have the famous drive-through tree;... More

We were passing through Eureka, CA. and my wife wanted to see part of the Redwood Forest. We went to Humboldt State Park, hiking many of the trails. We went down to the river then we had lunch on a bench in the park. If you are looking to see parts of the Redwood Forest and have 3-4 hours this... More

Amazing history and beautiful views. Remote area no cell signal. Would plan on booking at least one night stay in area then take long twisted road from Leggett to highway #1. Have plenty of gas and use restroom before heading out from town.

I have been coming to the Redwoods for most of my life, but am consistently amazed at these magnificent giants! Many trails through the forest that are a comfortable walk in the park. The Visitor's Center is a great place to stop for information and history of the area.

Driving through, a person cannot help but relax. So beautiful. Many areas for hiking and and picnics. Just take your time as it is not a long journey on the avenue, but well worth exiting the 101 for a few miles.

We were in awe the entire time driving through the Redwood Forests. It was not crowded when we went in May. Take hikes, drive the Avenue of the Giants, stop at all the turnouts & enjoy Mother Nature at her finest. This has been on my bucket list for some time & I would go back again.
