On a road trip from Seattle to San Francisco, we'll be passing through the Redwoods. Based on the time we have, I think we'll be starting the day from somewhere around Crescent City, and drive to somewhere around Garberville.
I've been reading about Redwoods National Park, Jedediah Smith State Park, Del Norte Coast State Park and Prairie Creek State Park. However, there are so many trails, hikes, scenic drives, and other interesting things to do there, that I feel a bit overwhelmed and lost.
We'll be driving a rental car, and have a full day to explore the area. We like scenic drives, but also to get out of the car and walk some trails. We do prefer shorter trails (up to an hour or something) over longer ones. Do you have any recommendations about what to see and do, that will give us some variety of activities (i.e. driving vs walking) and scenery? I know 1 days is terribly short, but unfortunately that is all we have.
Thanks a lot!
