This is a great area for all of the things you want to do outdoors. The main thing we did here was hike Horsetail Falls trail. Moderate is an accurate description of the trail. Dogs welcome. So many great photo ops.
The air was hazy due to fires nearby. On a clear day, it would be very pretty. However, most disturbing was the health of the fish we that we caught. Although we caught limits, every single fish was heavily infested with parasites. Other fisherman encountered...More
Although I was there for a work 2 days trip, it does not mean I did not enjoy the beauty of nature. I was there for some dam engineering stuff. we went through the forest roads towards two beautiful dams, L.L. Anderson and Hell Hole....More
If you enjoy trekking, camping, fly fishing or casting, and if you enjoy magnificent, unspoiled mountain vistas, then this is the place to come. Lake Tahoe is worth a visit all by itself, but there are smaller lakes and trails a-plenty--from easy to very hard....More
We enjoyed fishing Caples Lake in the Eldorado Forest. We fished for trout on Labor day weekend.

It's a tough question to answer, but let me try it. Due to overcutting over the years, the sort of redwoods you're thinking of--the big, majestic, thousand-year old ones--are protected within various national and state parks which are scattered throughout Northern California. Sequoia National Park may be the most famous of all. If you have access to a public library, consult "Northern California Atlas and Gazeteer" Page 9 lists all the state Redwood Parks and their locations. U.S. Park Service web site lists the National Parks with redwoods in N. California. Good luck
