Had a fun time outdoors. Amazing scenery and beautiful redwoods. Worth your while, for relaxing hikes along the treks. Not pet friendly unfortunately.

Wow, great park! Got to see “Mother” & “Father” of the Redwood family. Signs everywhere to wear masks if going inside, gift shops, and to Keep 6ft distance... My family and I were on a trail, park ranger passed and said nothing like “hi, hello,” but said this: “I would put your masks on while walking on the trail”. Seriously!? We are outside around No one. They had even made the trail “one way”, and he was the one going the wrong way. He left me speechless. What I said to myself after- Mind your own business!

This is a very nice park for hiking among the redwoods. For an introduction to the redwoods, the accessible Redwood Loop Trail close to the Visitor Center is an interpretive trail where one can find the "Father of the Forest" tree and the "Mother of the Forest" tree. There are also other trails rated as easy, moderate, or strenuous to suit different tastes and time budgets. There are many creeks in the park, with the Opal Creek being the closest to the Visitor Center and next to the Skyline to the Sea Trail. As explained by the interpretive sign, due to minerals carried in the water, the creek looks polluted. In late July, the creek is not dried up, but is reduced to puddles in certain areas.

Beautitful park with a number of great hiking trails of varying degrees of difficulty. There is a stream through part of the park that adds to the beauty. The park contains a number of (clean) restroom facilities and camping sites. We were there to hike and were not disappointed. Got a number of great pictures.

Really nice, relaxing hikes available here. $10 to get in, parking can be a pain if you don't get in before 10am. Sequioa trail was a great, enjoyable walk that doesn't require a specific pace, 4 miles total. Amazingly tall and wide-girth Redwood trees, enough to leave you in awe. Lunch area at the main information booth if you need food or water.
