  • See these gentle giants before its too late! They are graceful, lofty, transcendent, and truly ancient. The redwoods are a national and world treasure. Bring your camera and good walking shoes. Some trails are moderate difficulty but most are easily manageable for most people. Kid friendly too!
  • I absolutely love this place it’s magical! I swear the waters have healing powers! I always feel so refreshed, hydrated, clean, clear minded, energized 💯 every time I stop to dip in the river here. The views of the lush redwood forests are breathtaking. Lush overgrown green ferns and trees with fresh water all around you! Def suggest going here even for a quick dip! DONT LITTER! And PAY THE FEE !! Our parks are beautiful leave them that way!
