What do we consider some of the don’t-miss things to do in the California Redwoods? We’re glad you asked!


Redwood National Park

Get Use to the Sore Neck

You’ll be looking skyward constantly while driving and hiking in Redwood National Park, home of the world’s tallest living things. While marveling at the California Redwoods, you’ll appreciate the efforts of the visionaries who sought to protect these ancient behemoths, as well as the diverse environment in which they thrive. Join us as we discuss our favorite attractions and activities inside the park and offer tips on fun things to do in Humboldt County. 

Escape the Rat Race

No visit to the California Redwoods is complete without a foray into the nearby 1.7 million-acre Klamath National Forest. Encompassing four national recreation trails, five wilderness areas, and a vast network of mountains, rivers, streams, and lakes, the forest is one of the most biologically diverse regions in America with an unmatched diversity of plant life found nowhere else in California. Stick with us — we’ll share some of best ways to truly get away from it all. 

Take an Epic Drive

The world-famous Avenue of the Giants scenic drive is a 31-mile portion of old Highway 101 that includes the most outstanding display of California Redwoods. It’s included in the book, “1,000 Places to See Before You Die.”

Find Tree Insert Car

While touring the California Redwoods, you just have to do the drive-through tree thing. There are three drive-through trees in the California Redwoods area. We tell you where they are and what to expect. (Hint: They’ll cost a few bucks.)

There you go!

You’re all set for a journey like no other to one of the world’s greatest treasures, the remarkable California Redwoods.
