This is one of the most amazing forests I've ever been too. There is a sacred feeling felt when walking amongst these old trees. Summer would probably be the best time to visit as there was lots rain and mud during our visit. The rainiest day we experienced was when we did the Boy Scout Trail but it was an... More

Young or old enjoy the beauty and discovery offered in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. This area is one of our favorite spots to explore in. The river is beautiful and inviting, while the park area inspires ideas to return with a picnic lunch, because there is much to do and see within God's Creation that feeds the soul.

Do the hike around Stout Grove . Its only 1/2 mile or so and it will blow you away as long as you take the time to appreciate it .

My wife and came to Jedediah Smith Redwoods SP specially for spending time in the great outdoors. We camped at the local KOA (highly recommended) and hiked several shorter hikes in Jedediah. Be sure to not miss the Stout Grove with the tallest tree on the planet (unmarked but easily found). Also, if your car is any taller than a... More

I would have to list "seeing the redwoods" as one of the things everyone should do once in a lifetime. What better way to appreciate our creator than to see his creation.

The crystal-clear water of the Smith River nestled next to the giant redwood trees leaves you awestruck with the natural beauty. There are campsites and picnic grounds. So bring the Rv or pack up the tents and go camping, or if you just want to get away for the day there are wonderful places for picnics and hiking.

Make sure you come in from Howland road for the best start of the forest. Road is rough but neat place. Plenty of hikes here and long ones also. Enjoy it. Was here in Feb. and can't imagine if there were lots of cars on this road because that would ruin the fun there.

This was one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited. We were told about a less-traveled road to take when we stopped at a convenience store in Crescent City. It was so peaceful and little-traveled. We kept stopping and getting out of the car and walking around for a while to feel the majesty and peace. It was... More

One of the first great places to get out and experience the Redwoods as you come into California. Simply amazing.
