  • Nature - good hiking trails ((Big Tree Trail, Cathedral Trees Trail, Elk Prairie Trail und so viel mehr).) You can stroll through a miraculous world between giant trees, fascinating roots, magnificent ferns. Juveniles hide in the elk meadows, some a Stellars Jay is on the free seats. Just wonderful.

  • Stopped at the visitor center right next to the elk meadows to get directions for a trail not too long and difficult. Very friendly people guided us to the prairie creek trail. We met very few people ...  more »
  • We stopped in the visitors center to get information on hikes. The ranger recommended the Foothill trail to see Big Tree and then to loop back along the Prairie Creek Trail (about 3 miles round trip)....  more »

  • This 1.4 mile hike is not strenuous and is beautiful. The guide was useful and informational and can be picked up at the start of the trail. In addition to the giant Coastal Redwoods, several verities of wildflowers were in bloom during this last week of March visit. The steep drive up to the Lady Bird Johnson Grove can be a bit un-nerving, but stick it out. Well worth the effort.
  • Good side trip that bypasses US-101. Redwoods are spectacular and there are several turnoff spots along the route where you can get first hand feel of the gigantic sizes of the trees.
  • Take the scenic bypass off of 101 and enjoy this wonderful area. You'll likely see Elk and a few of the grandfathers of the Redwoods. Wonderful area!
  • Best of the Redwood national park, quiet and clean. Lots of options for trails and camping. Highly recommend
  • Definitely a place to be on your list. Gorgeous drives and hikes. Loved it.
