“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

Beautiful coastline and majestic nature just surrounds you when driving down Highway 101. Got to see Elk grazing alongside the road as well as see some scenic views from the vista points around and about. The redwood trees are just breathtaking and I would recommend you to visit these if you are ever in the area or somewhat close to there. We took a 3.5 hour drive to visit and it was worth every moment of it.

“A California Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

I just returned home from a California road trip, and I have to say that the Redwoods were my favorite part of the trip! It felt peaceful, magical, and amazing! This is the perfect place to visit with your significant other. I loved that there weren't tons of tourists. The people I met were friendly, and the scenery was breath taking. I felt like a child in awe exploring the beautiful trails. This is definitely a must see!

“Like stepping back in time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

This was one of the most magical places I've ever been to. The trees are stunning. They tower over everything and are covered in wispy fog a lot of the time. It was truly like being in a fantasy land of mythic forests. I love it!

“Amazing natural beauty...don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

Redwood National Park has so much to offer. In addition to some of the tallest trees in the world, the are also miles of beautiful coastline to explore. My favorites were Hidden Beach and the Cathedral Trail. The Tall Trees Trail is great also. If you want to visit it be sure to request a pass from the visitors center early in the day before they reach their 50 per day limit. Also, check out the Elk in the meadows. The rangers can tell you the best places to look.

“Amazing Experience. Never to be Forgotten. Would visit again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

After leaving Klamath we were advised to travel along The Norman B Drury Scenic Parkway. We left the freeway and almost at once we were immersed amongst the giant trees. We heard the drip drip from the canopy of the trees. We saw loads of banana slugs and beautiful insect life. It was so unspoilt and an experience we will treasure. We highly recommend this route as it is quieter than the main redwood stands and just as impressive.
