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.

  • Never imagined the Redwood Highway would go along the forest. The tallest trees in the world make the forest look dark. We enjoyed the scenic drive getting in & out of our car to walk the...  more »
  • There is a reason why these trees are tagged one a kind in the world. The moment we entered the Redwood National Park road, it was surreal and a whole another world. Most of the hikes we had chosen...  more »
  • So beautiful. So peaceful. So cool you need a jacket in May. I am so glad the Founders and John Muir had the foresight to save these treasures! Every hike we took was a bit different from the one...  more »
  • This place has some of the most amazing trees you will ever see. I drove through a few years back and keep dreaming of ways to return some day. If I lived in the US, I would do everything in my power to ensure these trees are protected for many more generations.
  • Great hiking. Well maintained. Well shaded for those hot days. Plenty of Redwoods for people looking for the "California Redwood" experience, but don't feel like dealing with the crowds (or cost) of Muir Woods.
  • Many trails open during Covid.
  • Very lovely places to see nature. Big trees that are very magnificent. As you follow a wooded trail through the woods you come to a lovely creek beautiful clear water. If you are very watchful you might see some elk or maybe bear. It is very peaceful and there is no fee. It is well worth it to stop by
  • All I can say or could do was just stand their in awe...I can't even begin to describe the beauty of this place. The words I could choose to describe it would never do it would have to visit this place to understand what i experienced. God does exist and the proof lives here. I haven't the words but my tears say it all...the majesty and wonder of it all is overwhelming. Definitely a must on everyone's bucket list!
