Even if you have visited Muir Woods and Sequoia National Park, Redwood is worth a visit. This park is a cooperative effort between the State of California and The U.S. Government, spanning 176 sq. mi. near the Northern coast of California. There is a visitor's center (Kuchel Visitor's Center) along Hwy 101 near the Southern end of the park before... More

This is not a traditional national park, with an easily-identifiable entrance to a single natural area. Instead, it is a federal-state lash-up that offers access to many different, non-contiguous areas with redwood stands and rugged beaches. So it can be hard to figure out where to go and what to see. If you have limited time, as we did, here... More

We started on the north end of the park and visited the Visitor Center in Crescent City first. The Rangers were extremely helpful in recommending routes to take and giving us directions. There are two other visitor centers in the park. Be sure to catch the movie in the main center. There are lots of trail heads throughout the park.... More

The park is big and beautiful! We took our time strolling through the park, enjoyed the beautiful redwood tress and visited the nice gift shop. We had a wonderful time!

The redwoods are so amazing. Words cannot describe their beauty and I hesitate to even write a review on something so awe inspiring. What I will do is remind people to 1. Lock your vehicle and stow away valuables - theft is a problem in some areas 2. Make sure to mark where you left your car. We got so... More

We did about 5 hikes through the Redwoods. The best hike is the Lady Bird Johnson loop trail. It's about 1 1/2 miles with very little elevation change. The Trillium Falls hike was a disappointment as the falls were not very large. The side road to the TF TH passsed by a herd of elk resting in a meadow. Always... More

We lucked out and caught a ranger walk and talk at Ladybird Grove. Was done very well. It's an odd layout of a park - goes in and out of the town with stops along the way. The rest of the stops were not that helpful and we didn't have much success seeing things. However still make sure to visit!

Redwood National Park was stunning! The many diverse areas, hikes and ecosystems are just amazing. We hiked several of the short trails and a couple of the more moderate ones. The size of these trees just blew me away! The various visitor centers throughout the park are also very nice. Rangers are friendly and very helpful. We even got to... More

Redwood National Park is a must if you're in the area. Whether the biggest trees or not, the park is beautiful and awe inspiring. Take a walk among the Giant Redwoods and Sequoias. If you're short on time, at least take a detour drive along the Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway.

The park has a large forest of Redwood trees. There are several nice hiking trails, a few that are handicapped accessible, which provide the best views of the trees. If you drive up the coast in 1 to 101 you will see larger trees adjacent to the road.
