Majestic redwood trail to the Boy Scout Tree is a spiritual journey. Take time to listen to the silence. Not to be missed. Walking fast this takes 2 hours. Don't hike fast--take 3-4 hours to see it, to feel it.

We walked parts of the Mill Creek Trail and we're both impreased by the trees and otjer plants and delighted to spens some time there. Leaving the 101 for the road trough the park is worth it. Walking a trail even more!!

We made an unexpected trip by car to San Francisco from Seattle, and on the return I had the vague idea that we would visit "The Redwoods". The first thing you learn upon consulting the map is that there are multiple parks with Redwoods to...More

You cannot even come close to imagining the beauty of the redwoods until you are actually standing amongst them. Pictures will never do them justice either. It's a humbling and overwhelming feeling to be in the presence of trees so strong and powerful and aged....More

I am not a fisherman. However this area and to the north is the Steel Head fishing mecca of the world. Unfortunately the season ends at the end of March. I think you are still allowed to catch-and- release.
