  • Some of the tallest trees in the world are along this avenue. We drove through most of it which takes about an hour or so though a twisty road. There are pulloffs along the way for slower drivers and ...  more »
  • We went to the North of California, to see the great, the highest the world tree: the Redwoods wieczniezielone. Dozywaja to 2 000 years, and journey to 100 m high. Such trees already blown up jestvtytulowa Alley Gigantow, ciagnaca on the space of several dozen km north from the village of Garbersville. Worth her through, stop by one of Buffalo Grill, and get into the majestic forest.

  • Still the most beautiful place on earth!
  • Wonderful drive through the redwoods. We went on a weekday and had the road to ourselves.
  • The road parallels the main highway pretty closely, but you can drive right next to the huge trees that block out the sunlight. It's an incredible experience to be so close to the trees and definitely worth the little detour. There are several places you can get back on the highway along this road, so even if you only have time to take in a few miles, do it!
  • These Hugh trees will make you cry!!! Awesome!
  • This is a route that needs to be taken. Take the extra 1/2hr and see just how many groves of Redwoods there are.
