  • We were only in Humboldt for a day so couldn't do any long trails. Rockefeller and Founders trails are short and worth doing if you don't have much time. Look up and enjoy the sight. Redwoods are maje...  more »
  • As stated by all of the reviews, this is a must see if you are in the area. Although the Avenue of the Giants is a nice drive, if you are short on time there is really only just a couple of must see s...  more »

  • I went down the Avenue of Giants and this place is definitely awe-inspiring. It's very scenic and beautiful. I don't know if I was lucky or what but I got to experience sun, cloud, rain, and hail. Definitely stop by the visitor center. You can learn a lot about the different types of redwoods, different types of animals, and history of all the little towns along the Avenue of Giants there. Plus, the visitor center has free coffee and tea!
  • A great spot to see the trees and be close to the woods. The Avenue of the Giants is a wondrous piece of roadway running parallel to 101 through some magnificent trees. If you are awed by trees that are hundreds of years old and whose majestic heights are amazing, this is worth the trip, even if this is your destination. It is an added bonus if you are traveling the 101 from San Francisco to say Eureka...got to drive and stop and get out and just listen to the silent growth of the trees.
  • One of the most amazing places I have ever been to. Time stands still in this massive redwood Forest. Great trails and a river nearby for hiking and photography. The energy within the park of ancient trees in indescribable. It's a must see for yourself. Time stands still within the park.....or it feels like that. Awesome!
  • Wow what incredible beauty. Awesome and Majestic! It is places like this as to the reason why I moved up here. That I live here, work here and play here. I think they are going to have to add to the Seven Wonders of the World this is a must see at least once in a life time.
  • Gorgeous drive with lots of easy hiking and magnificent trees to gaze in awe at. We spent far too much time exploring here. It was completely worth the experience.
