I don't possess the words to adequately describe the beauty of the giant sentinels found in the simply gorgeous Redwood Park. We spent 2 days and that was not nearly enough time - we walked along the coastal trail (you really can appreciate the grandeur of these giant, ancient redwoods), visited the Tall Trees Grove & hiked Lady Bird Johnson...

I recently spent 4 days exploring the Elk Prairie section of the Redwoods, which is a set of both national and state parks. The information centers seem to be run by the National Park Service, while the campgrounds are run by the California State Parks. The scenic beauty was stunning, even in the rain. The mist and fog made the... More

Wow, stories, pictures etc. will never do this place justice. If you're in the area it is an absolute must see. But take your time! I regret not spending more time in the area. Amazing experience.

We drove from Anaheim to the Redwoods with a stop in between at Pismo. The ride was beautiful and the rental house we stayed at in Orick CA was amazing. We went hiking, drove up the highway Trees of Mystery and took the Sky Trail to the cathedral tree ... this place was just simply amazing. If you want to... More

Words cannot describe! I wish I could live here. I fully expected a dinosaur to walk out of the forest. The sheer girth of these amazing trees boggles the mind. One of my favorite places on the planet, that I have seen.

If you want to step back in time...wayy back, go here! Standing amongst these aged trees that you can't even see the top of, is a humbling experience. The reverence and awe is something I have rarely felt at the same time until I stepped among these trees. I've been 3 times taking friends and family to experience this place,... More

A beautiful and fun drive. So many tall trees and just a small glimpse at what the forest looked like several years back. Great for photo shots and fun for seniors.

This park is one of my favorite national parks in the country. The redwood groves are an incredible place to experience. Aside from the redwoods, this park has many other worthwhile attractions, including fern canyon, and the coast. I also always love a stop at Paul's Smoked Salmon in Klamath for some delicious, fresh smoked salmon.

We traveled from Grant Pass OR to CA in late September which we covered all Redwood National Park. Redwood National Park is not just one park which is a combination of many state parks and there is no park entrance fee. The best way to explore this park not just only driving through it but also do some hiking. There... More
