THis place was so beautiful and really made us feel one with nature. A nice place to walk around and wonderful for children. We will be bringing our elderly parents here as we were very satisfied with this scenic experience.

Very cool to see the grove of titans. Be careful driving up into the forest, as the dirt road is filled with potholes and is slick.

One of the gems of the Pacific Northwest and one of my all-time favorite places to visit. Giant trees on the foggy coast. Be prepared for any type of weather but count on it being wet.

A beautiful place to appreciate our redwood trees. This park is set next to the Smith River so it's doubly amazing. Good area for kids.

They are all unique, but if you can only do one or two stops I recommend the Stout Grove and the Trees of Mystery further up the road.

We have been spending alot of time at Fort Stevens State Park lately fishing. This is a beautiful park with miles of trails for riding, Coffenbury Lake and The Wreck of the Peter Iredale. Make your reservations soon, this is a very popular place in the summer. Enjoy your travels! :)

I am open for advice regarding transportation services from San Francisco, CA to Crescent City, CA. I plan to make it to Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. Please let me know if you have any suggestions! The shorter the travel the better, but also reasonably priced. Thank you!
