This place is AMAZING. Start your visit at the Crescent City Visitor Center and the friendly staff will give you great information on what to see and how to find it! We toured Stout Grove, hiked a few short hiking trails, and spent most of the day with our jaws hanging open at the immense beauty of this place. We... More

We toured several Redwood California State parks along the coast and a few more inland and were more than impressed by the immense size, beauty and dignity of these red giants. I have never seen trees of this sheer size and quite beauty. Many are over 2000 years old and a few are more than 3000 years old.

I was just in awe of the beauty of the forest and the ferns. The trees are just incredible. Such a great thing to see in person. Pictures cannot so them justice. Can't fathom someone saying this was average. Just WOW!

The best place to see redwoods in their natural space. The trails are not paved or signed so there is no "made for the tourists" feel as in other parks. Here you hiking in as natural a setting as possible.

Well worth the trek here as it's not far from Crescent City, Ca. Beautiful loop hiking around Stout Grove. Amazing walk in the ferns and trees.

We spent the day going though various parts of the Redwoods. They are amazing trees. Make sure you stop at an information cottage. They have park rangers that can really tell you lot. Get out of the car and take some walks in the trails to get a real feel for this unique park.

As you drive off the highway onto the (well maintained) dirt road stop at the first pull in. You have to keep your eyes out for the "River Walk" sign. This is a good circular walk of about 1-1.5 hours. It takes you along the river and joins up with the Stout Grove trail which takes you eventually to the... More

This was a good drive through the redwoods, but I liked the Avenue of the Giants part better. The park was clean and well maintained.

Both are amazing and should be enjoyed. The road inside the park was very... More
