Take your kids and grannies to this spectacular forest. Easy walk, gorgeous nature and oh so unbelievably old. The only downside is that you can hear 101 highway sometimes. So happy the founders saved this for posterity.

We stopped off here because of the short nature hike. Ample spots for beautiful pictures. Feels like a whole other world! The half mile loop has several stops and the brochure from the park rangers was very informative.

This was one of my favorite spots in Northern CA. The trees are great and the history of how the movement to protect the Redwoods started was a bonus. Make the stop if you are in the area.

Just drive down the Avenue of the Giants. It is in the middle of the drive somewhere. There are signs and a decent amount of parking. It isn't hard to find.
