Redwood National Park Travel Guide: 84 reviews and 274 photos

As Eureka is the harbor from where the Redwood were logged and shipped out, a visit to the Redwood National and State Parks is a must (page to come). It is north to Eureka and south to Crescent city. The Redwood Forest is a rain forest characterized by the California Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) that can reach a height of 100 meters and be 2,000 years old. It is different from the Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) found for example in the Sequoia National Park on west-facing slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains.

    Was just there this week and the store is closed down and sandbagged! Anyone know what happened? Wanted to take my grandkids, would have been 4th generation to visit!

    Jean-Louis, those are fantastic photos of the amazing Redwood trees of California! I have always been fascinated by trees too, whether they be Pines, Banyans, Baobabs or Ceibas! I really must see more of the western coast of North America!

    Came specifically hoping to re-visit the Chandelier Tree and you accommodated with double duty! Smokey was there when I first visited 35 years ago so it is good to see he hasn't aged!

    Hans & I have not been to this neck of the woods yet, but sure will some day. The drive-thru tree shows just how huge these wonderful redwoods are. Love the tree house.

    The redwood looks very impressive, and with the lichen it gets a mystical feel. I hope to visit one day!

    Where in France is that Redwood that was introduced in 1856 and is now 52 meters tall? I wouldn't have thought the climate in France would be suitable for the Redwoods. In any case, I enjoyed looking at your new page about these beautiful big trees.
