“MUST SEE!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Its the Niagara Falls of trees!
There is no way to describe this place in any way that could ever do it majesty justice... but I'll try. The trees are stunning. You never know or realize just how small you are until your standing amongst the redwoods! The trails that are offered throughout the park are amazing! The air is clear, clean and crisp, a nice change for a lot of California. Trails are clearly marked and maintained but too much, you really feel like its been untouched and that your just a spectator amongst the wrestling of leaves and the limbs swaying in the breeze. Its an amazing must see sight. Don't forget to stop down the road at the Shrine drive thru tree.

“Excellent Family outing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Excellent trip. The ride out is a bit windy, but there are excellent paths. It is easy to get around with children. I would recommend it for anyone out in San Fransisco.

The trees are huge!!! The air is unbelievably fresh. We can almost smell the rejuvenating vibe all around. Definitely should go!

“Walked among giants!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Can't say enough good things about this park. We hiked the Lady Bird Johnson Grove trail which was a very easy walk. The trees are breath taking in size. We also hiked the Tall Trees trail which is rated strenuous. This has the world's tallest tree. The trail is very steep and not for anyone that is not in good shape but for all others it is well worth the hike. The park is adjacent to several wonderful state parks that should not be missed.

“Difficult to see”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

There are no signs to get in the park. You have to know where you are going. When I arrived at the one road to the park " bald hill" there was one small trail and all the other roads had gates and locks. Again no signs telling you where to go and a very long dirt wash board road that takes forever to cross
