Even in the rain it's worth a visit

It was pouring down rain when we went. Absolutely gorgeous. Anxious to go again without the rain so we can do all of the walking paths

It’s not the home of the largest redwood trees - it doesn’t have the largest (drive thru) trees, but it but it is definitely worth a visit. It’s about an hours drive from Monterey. Entrance fee is $10 per vehicle. There is plenty of parking. The park has restrooms, a visitor centre and gift shop. There is a short (less... More

Stop in the visitors center and get some useful info about Redwoods and the other trees and wild life in this park. Take the redwood trail loop but be sure to pick up a brochure explaining the numbered spots around the loop. Be sure to go inside the tree that once served as a honeymoon suite (not a joke)! This...

I happened upon this place looking for something to do for about an hour. What a fantastic hour! If you like nature, you'll love this place. The 0.8 mile hike was just about perfect!

Fantastic views, loves by our teens, a great low cost visit. I only wish I lived close as could walk thru every weekend. Loved the smell of the trees too!

None of the paths through this small park were particularly strenuous. Perhaps the most stressful is the one going down to the beach. There are plentiful, well-marked, loops that allow for taking exactly the kind of hike you might like. The gift shop is a 3,

wonderful place to visit, the trees are impressive, be sure to take time to go to the visitors center, on the weekends there are a number of volunteers around to give you all kinds of cool history about the park. Parking is 10 dollars but if you don't mind a hike you can park on the road outside but it... More

The hike is easily accessible for those in wheelchairs. Docents can be found along the bike on weekends. The hike is approximately a mile long. You can access the... More
