There are a few really bug trees here, but we were underwhelmed after visiting the north cascades and the rainforest there. Over hyped for sure, you can skip it and not miss anything.

If you are driving on Highway 101, you will go right through the park. There is no entrance fee nor any gates. I always take the time to stop and enjoy the trees. How could you not? Even if you are on a tight schedule, take a few minutes (preferably on Newton Drury parkway) , stop, and just breath :-)

This trip was a dream come true. I have wanted to visit the Redwoods my whole life. They did not disappoint. Everyone should visit at least once! Stop at the Hiouchi Visitor Center and ask the best place to see big trees and the best place to picnic. She knew exactly where to send us!

So peaceful and beautiful. Such a refreshing drive through these giants. We were absolutely awed by how big and tall the trees were.

This is a very peaceful park. It looked like there were a lot of people, but when you are out in the forest, it seems very secluded and serene. I highly recommend Fern Canyon (in one of the connecting state parks), and Lady Bird Johnson was good too. The park rangers were very helpful and knew what they were talking... More

The road to the national park is extremely fun. Bring out your sport car, pull down your windows, smell the trees and drive fast but safe! The redwood trees are beyond explanation. Make every effort and try to camp out at this beautiful scenic area.

We walked through Prairie Creek Redwoods and Lady Bird Johnson Redwoods in about 3 hours. The forest is lush, green and awe inspiring. Even with many cars in the parking areas, we saw very few people. The trails are level and well maintained - any age and ability level can easily walk them. Stop by any of the visitor centers...

There's several places to go with so many wonderful trails & drives to see the beautiful giant trees!! There's Walker Rd, it has REALLY bad holes in it (worse than Howland Hill Rd). This road will take you to Stout trail with a small parking area & restrooms. These parks are breath taking beauty every where you look!!

Much to see here, but we only had one day. Chose Fern Canyon and Tall Trees Grove. Please note that you must stop at the visitor center to get a pass and combination to the locked gate to get to the Tall Trees grove; it's free but they only give 50 per day. Also, that trail is 1.3 miles DOWN... More
