“Take 101 through for spectacular sights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Drove 101 south from Crescent City the heights of the trees are unbelievable! The view points and curves made for wonderful tree lined drive. We stopped at the visitor ctr for a map showing short hikes, since we forgot our hiking boots. Standing next to the huge trees made me feel a hundred times shorter than I actually am. The restrooms and picnic areas are very clean.
I was so happy we brought snacks so we could look over the ocean and picnic surrounded by the trees. No fees.

“Rush of Nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We stayed for one night in Eureka to visit the northern Redwood National Park. It was awesome. The trees are old, huge and very beautiful. I can recommend this trip to everyone who is travelling around in California

“Prairie Creek Redwood State Park visitor center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were looking for a place to take our 3 year old to see the Redwoods. Obviously he can't hike very far. We found the Prairie Creek State Park visitor center. The have several small short trails thru the redwoods and over the creek that are perfect for small children and the elderly. My girlfriend returned with her father who is barely ambulatory to visit the park and he was able to get out and see some of the redwoods. The staff was helpful and they have bathrooms on site that are easily accessible. Beautiful redwood trails.

“Redwoods "Ambassadors from another time"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

A visit to the Redwood National Park is a must. It brings all your senses back to reality after a visit to SF. It shows the grandure and grace of nature juxtaposed to the man made grandure of the Golden Gate Bridge and the vibrancy of San Francisco. If you arrive before 9:00 a.m. entrance is free. After 9:00 a.m., $7 for adults. Paths for easy strolls around the base of the redwoods and paths for hikes half way up and higher than the 300 foot giants. This is my second visit. Will go every time I'm in the area.

“Redwoods Beat Valium Totally”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Wow. Redwoods are seriously tall - and they grow really straight. Walking through the redwood groves was such a great experience. All the hustle and noise of the world disappeared. I felt really short but also so calm and at peace. I'm very glad we checked out this park. It's a treasure. Don't miss it. Through away your Valium. Plant redwoods and then wait very patiently.
