A stand of towering old-growth redwoods, where sounds are dampened to near silence, where only the dimmest rays of light penetrate...or are you looking for redwood hikes with beaches? Redwood hikes known for wildflowers? You'll find those, too, in this guide devoted to the best hikes in Redwood National Park and the state parks-Prairie Creek, Del Norte Coast, Jedediah Smith and Humbolt Redwoods State Parks.
Most trailheads are adjacent to paved roads, accessible within five miles of Pacific Coast Highway 101. This guide includes many short hikes off Avenue of the Giants and Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway. It will take you to the Boy Scout Tree and to the Tallest Tree, a 367.8-foot skyscraper. But it also includes trails for solitude even at the height of the tourist season. Background information on redwood biology rounds out your experience.
Author Bio:Residents of Humboldt County, California for more than twenty-five years, Jerry and Gisela Rohde have led frequent guided hikes in redwoods country. They have presented numerous slide shows for audiences including the Humboldt Redwoods Interpretive Association, the California Native Plant Association, and the Sierra Club.
