This was a wonderful drive with many places to stop along the way and get out. One of the most impressive parts of the Redwoods and a great cut through to Medford.

This was one of the most beautiful, peaceful places I have ever been. Honestly looks like a movie set. I was pinching myself to make sure it was real. Giant ferns, giant Redwoods, moss covering everything! A must see!

This is a scenic drive thru Jedediah Smith State park. It is not paved & it is narrow but it is a fantastic way to see the beauty of the park's redwood trees. This drive is a must do if you visit this park.

Unbelievably gorgeous! Stout Grove was awe-inspiring (even in the pouring October rain), Boy Scout Tree Trail was a gorgeous, moderate 5 mile hike that's very much worth it! one of the most incredible forests we've visited!

The drive takes approx. 45 minutes...lots longer if you stop as often as we did to take photographs and just stand in awe at the beautiful trees. Narrow road, some paved, some gravel. Do not need 4 wheel drive but RV's are a no no....More

There are some small parking areas along the way that you could use. Nothing on the road, per se. The road is basically one lane and the shoulder is used so people from the other direction can pass.
