State Park Beach
Visit California's oldest state park, Big Basin Redwoods State Park, where the ocean meets towering redwood forest. Marked as the tallest trees in the world, redwoods here stretch as tall as 106 m (350 ft). This park, founded in 1902, is a California Historic Landmark, as it preserves the grandeur of the biggest continuous stand of ancient coast redwoods below San Francisco. You can hike over 130 km (80 mi) of trails, ranging from easy to strenuous. Other favorite activities include camping and picnicking. Observe the forest's wildlife, including deer, herons, and bobcats. If you bring your dog, note that man's best friend is not allowed on hiking trails.
