There is a cross section of a Coastal Redwood out front with significant dates labeled at the tree’s rings with the first labeled “1000 Vikings discover North America.” The third largest Coastal Redwood is across the...

Drove from San Diego to drive by & experience the magnitude of these giants... must do. A lot of hiking trails just off the road with parking areas.

This should be a "must do" for every family. I was just driving along the road, and found numerous places to stop and take photographs, which was the point of my trip. Beautiful sites to see - enjoyed the views of the spectacular trees as well as the beautiful Eel River, which frequently followed the road (LOL - probably the... More

A beautiful drive and one well worth doing. The avenue isn't huge but has a few pull over spots for you to get out and explore. The trees are awe inspiring and something which just has to be seen to be believed.

Any pictures that you happen to see of this place, will not do it justice! this place is so beautiful, you have to see it in person! I recommend you pack a picnic because you will want to spend as much time as possible taking in all that nature has to offer.

There is no other place where redwoods are so encompassing as the Avenue of Giants and the Redwood National Forest! We would never pass up a chance to visit these wonderful woods. So quiet and fragrant and bug free!

If the beauty of the Redwoods along Highway 101 isn't enough it's even more enjoyable on the Avenue of the Giants (CA-254). The two lane road puts you right next to the giants which are literally right next to the road in some spots. We traveled from north to south picking it up just past Scotia, CA. If you are... More
