Nature Beaches Trails
Redwood National Park is home to a tremendous collection of the world's tallest type of tree. The stars of the show here stretch over 107 m (350 ft) high, with the tallest tree in the park, Hyperion, climbing to 115.5 m (379.1 ft). The park, though, offers much more than tall trees. It includes a 64 km (40 mi) stretch of wild coastline, plus raging rivers and a high prairie containing 300-year-old white oak trees. Gray whales swim along the park's coastal region in November, December, and March. Many visitors take quick hikes through redwood stands and crane their necks as they try to glimpse the treetops, but longer trails are also available. Roosevelt elk roam the prairie and bald eagles spread their wings overhead. Perhaps the park's most famous resident, though, is the banana slug, with a color resembling that of a ripe banana and a length of up to 25 cm (9.8 in).

Where to stay in Redwood National Park

Redwood National Park doesn't cover a lot of territory, so staying outside of its boundaries can still be convenient. Crescent City serves as a gateway city to the north of the park, and it offers plenty of budget motels, a couple of which deliver ocean views. South of the park, the area between Patrick's Point State Park and Trinidad State Beach includes numerous oceanfront inns, motels, and lodges in a tranquil setting. The park and surrounding area offer many campgrounds, though the fees for public camping outside of the park's boundaries are considerably less.
