Enjoy miles of hiking trails and soak in the beauty of the vast redwood forests.
Most people know Redwood as home to the tallest trees on Earth. However, the parks also protect vast prairies, oak woodlands, wild riverways, and nearly 40-miles of coastline. For thousands of years, people have lived here and enjoyed this verdant landscape. Together, the National Park Service and California State Parks manage and restore these lands for the inspiration, enjoyment, and education of all.
This World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve protects nearly half of the world’s old-growth redwoods, including champion specimens, over 370 feet tall. To give you perspective, that height reaches five stories taller than the Statue of Liberty in New York. Guests enjoy walking, biking, and horseback riding along 200 miles of trails.
The Jedediah Smith Redwoods, Del Norte Coast Redwoods, and Prairie Creek Redwoods are part of this national park system. Wildlife that you may see include Roosevelt elk, whales, and seals. Be sure to capture the beauty of the seasonal wildflowers in the meadows too. There is so much to see within Redwood National and State Parks, making it one of the top natural attractions in northern California.
