This trip was my first ever to the northwest and I can't wait to go back. I stayed in the area of this park for four days and could have stayed two weeks longer. It's hard to know where to start but an easily accessed part is Stout's Grove . Some of the larger redwoods in the park are found... More

I love everything Nature provides for us... Calm, amazing, breathtaking, smell, birds and critters .... These are just a few of what you personally might experience while walking among these wonderful trees... Go and enjoy peace, take a part of it with you so you can remember how you felt when you left..

Nice drive. Beautiful trees. Try to avoid busy time because of traffic, but everybody is nice on this narrow road.

There are several walking paths and I was pleasantly surprised that there were not a ton a people. The road is dirt/gravel with some pot holes, but its very manageable in a sadan or average car.

We took the 8.5 mile Howland Hill Road drive. It is dirt and gravel and very narrow with pot holes. There is two way traffic, so no trailers. Be prepared to back up in spots to let oncoming cars by. There are some places to pull over and enter trail heads. Allow at least an hour and have a full... More

Stop and see some beautiful trees or just drive through if you don't have much time. I wish I had more time there.

Have been coming here since I was a kid, bringing friends and family to make and share memories. Tent camping, small trailers and now full size motor coach, all experiences have been marvelous. Full size coaches will have some difficulty maneuvering unless you can drive the rig like a mini van - if we only remembered to take pictures of... More

Must visit if you are coming this way. Great for family camping and swimming. It's a good location to visit some other places, such as Stout grove where they filmed Star wars or Battery point light house when the tide is low. Great photos and you can walk out to it. Really there are too many really great hikes and... More
