Trust me when I say that seeing giant redwoods on TV does them no justice. Seeing them in person is an awe inspiring experience. Park is beautiful and the visitors center is informative and has a small museum with great exhibits. Also several films to view if you have the time. Go see this for yourself!

The drive was beautiful and well maintained. We especially appreciated the groomed pull off areas every hundred yards or so, both to give us a spot to pull over and also to keep us moving when others felt like stopping.

If you want to see the redwoods Humboldt State Park is a great place to view the the majestic trees. We absolutely can cross our trip to the redwoods off our bucket list. Just when you think you have seen a really tall tree you come to another tree that is bigger and taller .We had a great time viewing... More

We travelled up from San Francisco to see the giant redwoods, and we are so glad we did! They are awesome, the avenue of the Giants is the name of the road that takes you through a variety of different famous and stunning redwood trees, we stayed over in fortuna for the night and drive back down through the next...

Stunning drive with absolutely beautiful HUGE trees. An awesome drive through tree, with a cute little "tree house" area for kids. Definitely a must do if your're in the area.

Beautiful trees and the serene quietness . Drive till you find a sign that says tree. Parking next to river. To get to trial you have to cross the river. But you have to cross it via a fallen tree. The giant tree and the flat iron tree is right there so you don't have to do the whole hike.... More

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
