Lots of big tall trees. Reminded me of how tiny man are. Hikes for different abilities and durations. We visited Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. Both are part of the string of national and state parks in the California coastal redwoods area. The staff in Hiouchi Information Centre (Jedediah) recommended a couple of easy... More

What a great experience! Although we arrived in Redwood National Park in the rain, it did not deter our quest to see the giants! We drove along Newton B Drury Parkway from start to end. It was an incredibly beautiful drive with plenty of places to stop along the way. Amazing photo opportunities! In hind site, I think the rain... More

We drove down to Grants pass to stay in a hotel and visit Crater lake and we realized that we were only 1.5 hr drive away from Redwood national park, so we decided to go down to check it out. We got to drive some gravel and dirt roads through beautiful redwood groves it was a fun adventure. We saw... More

To say this place is unbelievable is a major under statement. To find out they come from very small pine cone was incredible. All the different one make for long but great day

I took my girls for the first time and they enjoyed it greatly. The were in awe of all the trees and their sizes. After we left they wanted to know when we were going back.

You are here to visit the redwoods and the redwoods don't disappoint. The redwoods are absolutely humongous and breathtaking. There is certainly nothing (in terms of trees) in the US like it, so definitely swing by this place if you can. There doesn't seem to be much of a distinction between the national and state park. Another suggestion is to... More

Absolutely love the sequoias and redwoods - having visited Sequoia NP, this park was also a beauty. Not as visited, but this makes for a quieter experience amongst the trees. They aren't as mighty as the sequoia, of course, but totally worth seeing if you haven't been / cant get to Sequoia NP. Wonderful - especially 'Big Tree'.

There are many hiking trails. After you hit a couple, you will realize all redwood trees are tall and they look pretty much alike. You will see some got struck down by lightening. Good for family outing and picnic. If in cloudy day, it can get dark as tall trees tend to block the sunlight.

The Newman Drury Scenic Pkwy was under construction weekdays while we were there in late September so you had to drive south on 101 and enter near Elk Prairie. We saw no elk tho we stationed ourselves there twice. We did take the loop to see the Big Tree which was nice, but the map was hard to follow. The... More
