Best known as the home of the world's tallest trees, Redwood National Park offers a plethora of outdoor activities, such as hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, kayaking, and sport fishing. Spreading across 44,515 ha (110,000 ac) of old-growth rainforest and 64 km (40 mi) of rugged California coastline, the park's verdant landscape also encompasses vast prairies, oak woodlands, and wild waterways. Camping in the backcountry is arguably the best way to experience the diversity of wildlife, while guided nature walks provide additional information about the history and geology of the area.

  • The huge trees of Redwood National Park really blew me away. Before coming here, I had an idea of what to expect, but I did not know how much I'd love being next to trees that are hundreds of feet...

  • It would be easy to simply think of Redwoods as a forest park, as we did hike in two groves with the tallest trees in the world but visiting it exposes that it is so much more. It is meadows and...

  • Awesome National park, my favorite one to date. I would recommend going early before the crowds get there. Its far more atmospheric then.
  • Very nice park. Beautiful to drive through. Went with small kids and they loved them big tree.
  • Amazing park. Beautiful redwood trees. Pro tip: The Lady Bird Johnson trail has an extra trail that leads to the Berry Glen trail. The Berry Glenn trail is 3 miles in and 3 miles back. There are some switchbacks but it’s doable with kids. Enjoy!!!
  • One of the best National Park i ever been to!It went all along the the North California,you wouldn't see anything more peacfull than this place.It is such an incredible scenery!!!
  • Redwoods is one of the most spectacular parks. Praire Creek is free, and there is no park fee. The hikes are amazing and weather is always great. There aren’t many places in the world that will give you the satisfaction that visiting the park gives you. It’s time we’ll spent and well worth any effort that you make to get there. Some of our favorite trails are Brown Creek, Ossagon, Rhododendron, Big Tree, Cal Barrel Rd and of course the Praire Creek and Zig Zag. There are so many attractions at the park. If you keep your eyes open, you can find a variety of mushrooms - some poisonous and some extremely rare. The snails, (if you are lucky -flying squirrels), elks and deer are in abundance at the park. The park is a wonder of nature and of the fine ecological balance that has kept these giants alive. Highly recommend for all age groups.
