This is the place to see lots of big big redwoods. You do need a car. There is so much to see, plan on a whole day just to get an overview. Stop get out and wander the trails.

Went with a group of friends for the weekend. The views are amazing. There are simple hikes and there are more complex ones; okay for kids.

I couldn’t get over the Sherman tree it was so big. The path to the tree is well paved but it does have steps with no railings. Luckily I had hiking poles with me to help me navigate up and down the steps. The pamphlet...More

We went into the park today and the road was open; but they were doing roadwork inside the park. Also, we found out the hard way that GPS does not work here.
