We were told of this little detour between Crescent City and Grants Pass by a friend and were taken away by the views as you drive up Howland Hill road. The scenery is hard to believe with the moss covered trees covered in the dust from the unpaved road it looked like something from a Jurassic Park film. Lots of... More

We camped here for one night, walked through the woods, and generally spent time under the big trees. And it was amazing. Truly amazing. The trees tower above you, and they seem like benevolent giants. There are trails for everyone, from those in wheelchairs to the hardiest of hikers. All I can really say is this: Go. If you haven't... More

This drive up howland hill road is bumpy but worth it. The boyscout tree trail is amazing. So is stout grove. They filmed the Star Wars Endor scenes at Stout Grove. Truly like another planet.

This is truly the gem of the redwoods, it has some massive trees and great hiking. The river is crystal clear and nice for swimming and one simply cat turn a corner without coming upon another massive tree. The boy scout trail is on a narrow winding road but worth the drive, as both the road and scenery ate breathtaking.... More

Coastal redwoods soaring well over 350 tall in a lush rainforest landscape. Breathtaking beauty. It's mystical and magical. Take the Boy Scout trail- easy hike among the forest Giants. The grandeur of the forest will give you goosebumps. Enjoy!

it may seem like once you have seen a giant redwood you have seen them all but take the time to make a few short stops and hike some trails and you will appreciate this area even more. beautiful.

We drove through on our trip and really enjoyed the scenery. A little smoky from the wildfires, but the smell kind of added to the enjoyment.
