  • Area is a lot more spread out than we imagined. Lots of big trees, obviously. Several hiking trails for all abilities. Had a wildfire nearby so only spent 1 day. Definitely like to return.  more »
  • Had a bad knee so not much walking the trails but the drive was beautiful. Stopped several times to enjoy the greatness of it all.  more »

  • The Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park is amazing. There is nothing better than strolling through the massive redwood trees. When my husband and I visited we went when it was still dark and got to witness the sun rising through the trees with a nice layer of fog on the ground. It was almost a magical experience. This is a great park to spend some time hiking and exploring.
  • Aside from the dust, which covered everything around the dirt path. It was very nice. You can stop anywhere as long as cars can pass you. There are plenty of trails to walk through. Stout Grove is a very nice trail. The trees are beautiful. Boy scout trail is also nice. The trees really are truly great.
