It is located 30mi south of Eureka, California, near Weott in southern Humboldt County, within Northern California, named after the great nineteenth-century scientist, Alexander von Humboldt. The park was established by the Save-the-Redwoods League in 1921 largely from lands purchased from the Pacific Lumber Company.

This is a review of the visitor center for the park, not the attraction itself. The visitor's center was pretty good, restrooms are available, and a so-so movie can be watched. Staff are friendly...

This spot was so beautiful. Have you ever wanted to feel like a fairy for a day? Well, after two different vacations I have now seen all the red wood groves in California. My husband and I decided to travel to California to see the Pacific Coast on Hwy. 1. I am very impressed with the amount of people involved with preserving the trees. The forest rangers were friendly and well informed on the area. The drive through the groove was on smooth black top road. Watch out for the photographers set up along the road. These trees will make you feel very small.
It is amazing to have opportunity to walk among all those giant trees, clovers and mushrooms. The trails were easy and provided us plenty of fun and joy. Breathtaking landscapes! We want return in another season to see the new colors and the changes they will bring to the walk.
