Great adventure among the giant trees Dec 10, 2012
While dating still dating my wife, we went camping to the Redwoods over Labor Day 2005. We stayed in Jedediah Smith State Park and basically used it as a base to hike all over.

What wasn't to love? Huge trees. Tons of wildlife (deer, frogs, birds, caterpillars, ...). Great friends. More huge trees. Beautiful hikes with plenty of scenery. Mud and water. Best of all, I got to get to know my future wife a lot better.

This park was way too big to do in a single weekend and we definitely need to go back. In fact, we have been wanting to for years and haven't found the time yet. :(

#7 - Redwood National Park Aug 09, 2011
Redwood National Park seems to get lost amongst the many state parks located in California but it is not one that should be forgotten. The trees tower over the existing area and is quite a fun trip to make if you enjoy camping and being outdoors. Best part, it is free, camping might run you a few bucks for the area but the entrance is free and the beauty is worth it. I have never been there during the Winter but try and avoid the Summer when it gets rather warm and uncomfortable due to humidity, but Spring has never failed me during my excursions. *Best tip - get lost. Bring a map but just explore, stay on a trail, pack a lunch, and just keep going and going.

We didn’t take in all that Redwood National and State Parks has to offer. However, Highway 101 flows through the park and gives a good clue as to the kinds of things you’ll see and experience. From the town of Orick at the southern end to the Hiouchi Information Center on the northern area there are altogether 5 information and visitor centers. And not only will you find these two parks but several other State Parks along the way, and they are Jedehiah Smith, Del Norte Coast, and Prairie Creek. One of the great things about Redwood National Park is that it is free! The State parks do have fees for day use, camping, and extra vehicles in a campsite. There are nearly 200 miles of walking and hiking trails throughout the parks. Horses are allowed on a few. Bicycles are allowed only on designated trails. This is another of the Coastal Redwood areas, and is something you would be pleased you saw. Even driving straight through slowed my heart rate and relaxed me.
