This is one of my favorite places on Earth. Even though I'm from one county north, Del Norte County, these trees are the best. Following through the Redwoods along the Eel River the majestic forest envelopes you and shields you in it's mists. You can...More

Just when you think you've hiked all the wondrous redwood trails, you stumble upon another treasure. Drury-Chaney is "easy" (level & paved for wheelchairs), but you don't feel like a novice. Your eyes are occupied, gazing upwards at the quiet redwoods, or peering down at...More

Humboldt State Park is near Weott, at Exit 663 off The 101. The drive through the park is 32-miles of redwood forest with plenty of turn-offs and parking areas, so it is easy to walk under these ancient giants. There is no charge to enter...More

The Redwoods are absolutely amazing. Driving through the Humboldt Redwoods National Forest seems almost mystical. The dappled sunlight cascading through the tall trees makes you forget the modern world. A must drive to truly experience the Redwoods.

What an incredible sight to see! The Giant Redwoods are overwhelmingly beautiful & unbelievably gigantic! You have to stand near them in order to realize just how huge they are! The park & its history is an experience not to be missed.

We certainly enjoyed seeing the Humboldt Redwoods. We were driving on the highway and we were surrounded by Humboldt Redwoods. People were not speeding. They too were admiring the Humboldt Redwoods. Those Redwoods are always a nice sight to see. Worthwhile to see!

Hi, I'm planning a road trip with my mom and an aunt (so 3 adult women, 2 of them over 60), and was looking for some ideas. We're leaving from San Francisco and driving up to Seattle in about a week, during the summer (July). We're somewhat flexible on the budget, and prefer to stay in nice, clean and comfortable places that aren't luxurious. We're mainly focused on sightseeing, maybe a little light hiking, scenic drives, and other light activities, since none of us are very outdoorsy...More

The camps in Humboldt Redwoods State Park are excellent as most state parks are. They tend to be a little dark because of all the trees but then that's why you are going there. We like Richardson Grove State Park because the sites are along the Eel River and are more open and get more sun. And you can swim in the river. In Redwood National and State Parks, Prairie Creek has two excellent camps, Elk Prairie and Gold Bluffs. Gold Bluffs is a beach camp and is one of the few in California...More
