Drove from the Oregon border. Stopped at the North visitor center in Crescent City, very very helpful. Took all day to drive through as many areas as we could, saw Elk at Prairie Creek, did several short hikes. Forest and big trees spectacular! Makes you want to hug a tree! One day was not enough, plan to go back.

This place is really, really special. Just breathtaking. The air smells wonderful. The trees breathe life and energy. No mosquitos. Incredible hiking. I've been twice and simply can't wait to go again. Also, make sure to go to Humboldt State Park.

Arrived at the south end visitors center at 9am. Didn't leave the north side of the park till 5pm. Rangers were exceptionally helpful and friendly at both visitor's centers. Junior Ranger program a big hit. The addition of the Redwood Edventures Quest was a big hit with the kids. We did Lady Bird Grove (fine..basic, nothing exciting, good for littles... More

With California being in the throes of a drought, we decided to head north along the CA coastline on Hwy 101 and make our way through the Redwoods. There is a peacefulness here; a sense that time has stopped as these magnificent trees guide you. Green and lush, they are sentinels that have withstood the test of time, and I... More

Great park! The drive from Sacramento was somewhat tedious; lots of construction in the mountains (2+ hours travel time added). I'm not sure if all of Eureka, CA. is as rundown as we saw but it was enough to make us cancel our hotel reservations and drive about 20 minutes north. Park rangers were friendly at the welcome center, you... More

We made sure to schedule time within these forests as part of our honeymoon. And they did not disappoint! Be sure to stop at one of the many visitor centers to gain insider knowledge of the coolest places in the park. The rangers will give great advice on where to go and what to see if your just passing through.... More

From the moment you enter, you feel like you have been transported to another time and place. You feel so tiny when taking your photo next to these gentle giants. It's amazing that no matter how far you drive, you never tire of the views offered and there is plenty opportunity for stopping to hike (oh how I wish we... More

Redwood National Park is a big place. This comment is about the new trail called Berry Glen Trail that leads uphill from Elk Meadow. That is a rest stop north of Orik, just before Prairie Creek State Park, maybe 3 miles, and on the turn off for the beach. The meadow is a nice picnic place. No staff, bathrooms, and... More
