My daughter and I were on a road trip, driving a red mustang convertible up the coast of California. We wanted to spend some time in wine country, so we headed in land a bit. Another "want" on our trip was a hike in the redwoods. We had researched a couple of places to go -- the Muir Woods just... More

We visited on Saturday of Thanksgiving week. Our children (ages 8 and 7) are early risers, so we were at the Park by 8:30am. We had a Scavenger Hunt map and followed that around the trails. It rained while we were there but the canopy of the trees sheltered us somewhat. We were done with the Hunt after a couple... More

Great short or long hike or just a stroll through some amazing 1000 year old trees. It is hard to believe how long the trees have been around, and how 85% of these majestic trees were logged. We have a responsibility to protect them! Go check out this amazing park and bask in the silence of these beautiful trees.

Walk among the giant redwoods in this lovely state park. There are several hiking trails as well as the option of driving through for a fee. Signs placed along the trail are interesting and informative. The day we were there was chilly and rainy but it was still a delightful adventure and quite peaceful. Highly recommended especially for lovers of... More

This is a redwood preserve of the same caliber as Muir Woods without the crushing crowds. The rangers were all really friendly and helpful and all we saw was well maintained and gorgeous!

We had a wonderful couple hours walking around amongst the Giant Coastal Redwoods. It was a cooler day, but the beauty of the trees made it worthwhile. The visitor's center had friendly staff who explained differences between Giant Sequoia and Coastal Redwoods. Great place to hike!!

So quiet. East path to walk. It was amazing to see some of the trees so large. To think how long they have been here is beyond comprehension.

A must see! Go early as it gets very busy by 11:00 or so. Very peaceful and beautiful!! Be sure to park and visit the welcome center to get tips on what to see. We also drive up to where you can camp and saw beautiful views!

This is a beautiful place. We took the easy walk down the paths to see some trees that are 1300 plus years old....Then we saw the sign that went to the east ridge and decided to get ambitious and hike the east ridge trail....It was pretty steep on the way up. Not scary, just a work out...especially for us since... More
