Our last stop in the Redwoods area and one of the best (along with the groves in Humboldts). Its small but the trees are super impressive.Visit in the later afternoon when the sun is low and it adds to the mystic atmosphere.

Even though it was a chilly November day, it was a treat to walk among the tall Redwoods next to the pristine Smith River With the sun shining on the trees it felt like a super natural experience.

The Stout Grove trail was well worth the 20 minute stroll. It is easy enough for anyone and you will be right among the huge redwoods. The only downside is we couldn't take our dog so we were fortunate that it was a cool day and we could leave him in our car. I can see their point though as... More

We only had time for a short visit to the Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park on our way to Crescent City.

Trees are unbelievable! Breathtaking site to see. Take howland hill road in, but it's quite narrow so don't bring a big vehicle. There are spectacular trees along the road as well.
