Fantastic redwoods.

We enjoyed the park and were awed by the redwoods. They are magnificent. What a great treasure we have saved.

Took the grandkids there for summer vacation. WoW, what an interesting place to let the kids roam about. There are wonderfull views of the trees, great paths to walk on, and just an awesome place to be for summer.

Without a doubt, the best redwood park of Northern Cal -- do not miss the one lane road, Boy Scout Trail, Stout Grove and try to find the Titan Grove off the Mill Creek Trail (though the NPS won't like this). Don't miss this visit of a lifetime!!

We loved this road even though being only 1.5 lanes wide in most places. What a perspective that stage coaches came through here in 1880's. Drove through in Dodge 3500 truck without a problem.

Redwoods are abundant here so you have to be special to stand out. The park is well maintained, the trails loop back to their beginnings, many interpretive signs, and safe. Could use some more parking spaces. We liked it.

Enter the park road just past the Elk Valley casino. It's a paved road for a short distance and then turns into gravel. This is not a two-lane road, but one lane that meanders through old growth redwoods. Be advised that the speed limit of 15 mph is not something to ignore. Vehicles travel in both directions and you may... More

Just like most reviews said this is the best among all Redwood. Although at Newton B Duruy pkwy you also saw big trees but at this forest the view is different. It is thrill to drive through this forest. However the long curvy dirt road ( with big holes) will test your patient. I could not resist the beauty and... More

Do not miss the Howland Hill Rd drive through the park. It is amazing! Also, do the Boy Scout trail. Even if you only go. Part way and turn around, this trail is easy enough for almost anyone. A few slight inclines and you do have to be careful of the many tree roots on the trails in some places,... More

This park was amazing!! Must drive Howland Hill Road. It is a narrow 2-way gravel/dirt road that takes you into the Redwood forest. The trees are immense and absolutely gorgeous. There are enough pull offs to accommodate passing cars. You feel like you have entered an enchanted forest from the moment you enter Jedediah Smith SP. Stunningly beautiful. MUST SEE..

Great campground. Our site, A28, I think, was HUGE. Hiking trails, peaceful river and of course, the TREES!
