A 31 mile trek - this is well worth the off-highway path just to see these majestic giants up close! The large trees provide an oasis of coolness amid the heat of the summer. With large redwoods and sequoias, deer, elk, and any number of birds - it was a nature walk that I'm glad we did. It is great... More

If you cut down all the redwood trees in all the redwood parks in California, and laid them out from end to end, and saw how many times they wrapped around the world, it would be less times than how many times better this park is than the others. Quiet, beautiful, relaxing, haunted (?), this park surpassed all my prior... More

A wonderful place to see old growth redwoods. There's a Visitor Center at Humboldt State Park headquarters/campground at Burlington. It's located three miles south of the town of Weott on the Avenue of the Giants. (State Hwy 254) The Center has a wonderful Natural History Museum where you can view displays of local nature and gather information of all the... More

I've never seen the Redwoods before and it is a humbling experience. They are so majestic (ok, cliche I know) but it truly fits. Enjoy the walking paths and when we went it was pretty empty in the park so we had plenty of space to be on our own and be amazed at the beauty around us. Pick up... More

Do not be in a hurry....take your time and see it all and be amazed. Stop at the information center for maps and directions. Emily, one of the helpful Rangers, helped us to find hikes we never would have found on our own. Stop at a Subway for picnic sandwiches, perfect location for a picnic and you need to plan... More

Exit the hustle and bustle of US 101 at exit 645 and drive north on State Route 254. Majestic redwoods, interesting attractions, the Visitor Center at Weott halfway through your drive. Relax, take a break at any one of the 9 separate groves of redwoods, with walking trails. It is a different world, running on a very different clock! Rejoin... More

Take Route 254 off the 101 and follow "The avenue of the Giants". Make a stop and take a walk amongst 1000 year old trees.

The Redwoods are magical. The entire park is beautiful and very well maintained. Educational opportunities abound if you have children but it was crowded and, as with all such areas, there may be some chaos surrounding the overcrowded areas. Fortunately, you can still find trails that are not well traveled and enjoy nature in solitude.

We spent two nights in the Burlington campground. Beautiful among the trees. The nightly amphitheater was fun and educational. It was tight getting in the campground with our 27 foot trailer. But it was doable. The avenue of the Giants was amazing. Be sure to do the short hike to founders tree and the giant tree in the Roosevelt forest... More

The park was beautiful. However, its a crowded spot. Lots of kids running around unattended... The space we had was big, plenty of room to spread out. The showers were nice enough. The park is in CA so they do charge for the shower time. Bring quarters! And it did rain, for like 5 minutes, out of the blue. On... More
