Can you say big! Big beautiful trees as the sun shone thru on a perfect day. Dropped down to see the park as we were traveling Oregon. We were not disappointed!

You must see these trees. But you HAVE to get a pass to park and get into the park in advance. Pathway is very easy to walk, you can take a wheelchair. Worth the visit.

The trees are beautiful, the forest is beautiful. It's a great place to visit. There are plenty of hiking trails and a beautiful beach. The James Irvine Minor's Ridge Loop is a beautiful hike and Fern Canyon is a must see.

We just loved walking around Redwoods National Park. We walked on the Lady Bird Johnson Trail. It was magnificent and we took so many great pictures to share with our friends.

Trail is four mile out and back, with over 1000 feet of elevation drop from trailhead to the beach. Returning to parking is quite strenuous as you gain the same elevation. Trailhead: Hwy 101, mile marker 16, a little over 9 miles south of Crescent...More

There were lots of dogs from what we saw. Smith River had lots of people swimming with dogs as well. Might play it safe and call the visitors center or BLM and ask if there are trails where dogs are not permitted.

If you’re in the Praire Creek area (near Trinidad, Eureka) you will not be affected by fires. Do not even see smoke or any evidence of the more southern and inland fires.
