This was my first visit to Humboldt Redwoods State Park. I went through the national park more than 30 years ago but then it was a quick drive through. HRST is like no place on earth. It is home to the largest old growth redwood grove in the world - in the Rockefeller Forest. There are many accessible hiking trails... More

Not the easiest place to find as it if off the Ave of the Giants on the Mattole Road at mile marker 20.6 at Dyerville. The trail is 0.7 miles but it is flat. You are definitely among the giants here ... also, much less crowded. Look carefully for the signage for the Rockefeller Forest as the narrow road is... More

We stayed Friday overnight on our trip up the 1/101 coast late in October and at the end of their camping season so half their 58 sites were closed and by the end of the evening they were full. The park is full of redwoods and very clear of underbrush allowing all the trees to stand out. The camp roads... More

The Large Redwood trees are breath taking, the overwhelming abundance of large trees to view of all shapes and sizes are awesome!

This is a beautiful state park in northern California. It has ancient redwood groves, miles of hiking trails, numerous pull offs and several campgrounds. The trees are giant and the forest gives off an eerie aura of peace, silence and darkness. We luckily managed to get a camp site at Burlington Campground without reservations for the standard $35 rate. The... More

Setting out early in the morning, we pedaled our bikes south through the Avenue of the Giants! With most auto traffic far off to the west on the new high-speed Hwy 101, we had the old highway nearly to ourselves. And what an absolute joy it was. We rolled almost silently through this fantastic forest of magnificent giants, every mile... More

OK, like most state / national parks in the USA its overcrowded and not quite what you would expect - i.e. human impact is very, very visible and the chances of any solitude or peace are pretty close to nil. Having said that its worth the visit or, at worst, the drive through for the huge redwoods and semi-forest.

My friend and I went backpacking here last week. The trails were well maintained, the trees were big and beautiful, and it was a great experience. The "Giant Tree" is truly impressive and climbing around the fallen trees is fun.

Loved the drive through the Avenue of the Giants. Easy access to groves throughout the park, but longer hiking trails are not very well marked so it can be difficult to find the trail you want.
