This is destination overlook if there ever was one. Do the coastal drive, Stop to admire the view of the mouth of the Klamath (gorgeous, but there isn't anywhere to sit), and then come here for a quiet picnic and a fantastic view. You won't...More

If you’re in the Klamath River area, get off Hwy 101 on Klamath Beach Road and turn left onto Alder Camp Road (get a map of Redwood National Park at the Visitor Center). This will take you to High Bluff Overlook. You’ll find ample parking...More

We were surprised to find so many folks at this quiet little stop. We tried to see the ocean views on two separate days but the fog was just way too thick. It was surprisingly "cold" at the water edge. The inland temp was above...More

This is definitely worth a stop. It is famous for whale watching (bring binoculars). Gorgeous stop to or from the redwoods. It was one of the highlights of my trip!

We drove the coastal loop which was outstanding. At the end we parked and walked on the beach where the river empties into the seal. Beautiful. There were dozens of seals out there frolicking close to shore. It looked like they were checking us out....More

If you're in the Redwoods/Klamath area, you should stop by the High Bluff Overlook. We drove to the coast and did some sightseeing and almost bypassed the High Bluff. We're lucky we didn't! It just takes your breath away. Must see!

This is a short trip off 101 just about 15 miles south of Crescent City. Once you stop there you sort of make an excuse not to get going right a way. The view is out of sight. Take the time to drive down the...More
