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

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
