We had in our minds we would see a few big trees. We had no idea the number and size of trees. Amazing. It blew our minds to see the size of these. The drive was so nice thru the trees. We did the drive thru the Elk Meadow and saw tons of Elk up close. We also did the... More

We have seen most of the Redwood parks. We had never been to this one before. Jedediah Smith Park was serene and beautiful and we enjoyed the nature trail which eventually took us to the footbridge that crosses over the Smith River.

The park ranger recommended the Stout grove for big trees and we were not disappointed. We drove down a narrow dirt road for 3-4 miles and it was well worth it. The grove is awesome and immense and we were one of the only people in this hidden gem.

This was our first trip to see the coastal redwoods, and we were in awe of their majesty. This is such a beautifully preserved place, cool and lush. If you haven't been, GO. It's one of the most amazing natural phenomena I have ever seen in 53 years on the planet.

So the road to this park, or more specifically, Stout Grove is long, windy and bumpy but definitely worth it. When you see the size of the Stout tree you will be glad you came here. The Stout tree may be the most impressive redwood of all! This grove is also secluded and much more serene than most of the... More

The Mill Creek Trail is three-hour path through old-growth coastal redwoods that offers a memorable exposure to unspoiled rain forest. Easily accessible introduction to this dramatic ecosystem, dripping with moisture and moss. Take a picnic if you plan to be there during lunch.

Huge beautiful Redwoods. Be sure to take the drive through the Redwoods. Road is a rough but it is well worth it.

we camped for one night at Jedediah Smith State Park, while visiting the Redwoods on our trip down Hwy 101 in September 2014 ... it was nice to come inland from the coast just a bit, was probably 15 to 20 degrees warmer, felt good to get away from the incessant fog that had been hugging the coast for days...
