We took the driving tour through the park, stopped and took pictures. Really enjoyed the drive. Four years ago we saw the sequois at Yosemite National Park (we took their site seeing tour which was fantastic for us).

The size of these trees can not be captured by my camera! This place is beautiful! And it smells great. There are so many nice areas in the forest to see. You have to see it for yourself to appreciate it.. reccomend.

Even though it was pouring rain, the trees shielded the car somewhat. Plenty of places to pull over for pictures. Beautiful drive through the Redwoods. Narrow in places, potholes, but it should be a slow drive anyway.

We went in from Crescent City on the main road, but took the very adequate but unpaved road back. I would highly recommend this route, it wasn't... More

Wow. The California Redwoods. Be sure to stop at the ranger station and get a good explanation of what you're going to see. There is an unpaved road with stops at some trailheads that extend the 45-minute drive-through a bit longer. Stop along the way and take many pictures of the various configurations of redwoods, their root "families", and the... More

Large National and State park with lots of campgrounds. Imagine being deep in a giant redwood forest and look straight up. Lots of lush green vegetation. Rangers were very friendly.
