Turned down Walker? road to get out of traffic and it was the best choice ever. Saw some incredible redwood burls and little glades. Discovered Smith River.

This was the redwood forest I dreamed about. My husband crossed this one off his bucket list and was awestruck.

This is an amazing experience. When we came around a corner and saw the redwoods we both went "wow". The entire park is like being in and experiencing another world. It is majestic, so quiet, and absolutely beautiful. This must have been what the world was like before we moved in.

Love this park! Quiet and serene. Plenty of things to do between hikes, fishing, and biking. Really neat camp sites around old redwood.

This redwoods state park is some what off the beaten path. It has all the features of all the state parks. It's a little bit harder to get to. When you get there you will see the and feel the majesty of the redwoods. This one of those places that is worth a little extra time to stop and enjoy

Driving up from Crescent City you go onto a rough forest road which twists through the giant redwood trees. Amazing sight. Stop at the parking area after about ten minutes drive and take the Scout trail to the waterfall. The views and sounds (very little, it is really quiet) make this a memorable hike. We met a visiting couple who... More

A worthwhile visit. We stopped at the Ranger Station and gift shop. Spoke with a lovely docent who gave us a great map and told us about certain drives in the park. Stout grove is a must stop A loop walk in the most stately grove of Redwood trees ever. Great fun for the teens in our family. You can... More

Drive through and enjoy the awesome giant redwoods. Plenty of places to stop off along the route and take photos. Some of the visitor centres are closed during late fall and winter. Good easy road.... Well worth visiting any time of the year. Dog friendly and a great place to walk and take photos. Take care if wandering far from... More

Lovely trails through the redwood forest. The Boyscout trail to Fern Falls is the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors! The Redwoods and ferns and greenery everywhere remind me of how small I am in the amazing world. It felt magical as we walked along and the falls are beautiful.
