Here’s the thing about this park: it’s home to the tallest trees in the world. As in, on this planet. Reaching more than 300 feet to the sky, they dwarf their surroundings, and are inherently impossible to describe.
In fact, when asked about redwoods, California native John Steinbeck once said, “No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree...The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe. It's not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time.”
If you aren’t sure exactly what he means, you will understand once you make a visit to Humboldt Redwoods State Park, which spans nearly 53,000 acres with more than 17,000 untouched old-growth coast redwoods. Miles of meandering hiking trails and campsites set in the lush woods provide endless opportunities to wander through and discover the ancient groves, which are home to trees more than 2,000 years old.
One of the best places to experience the redwoods, this is definitely a do-not-miss California camping spot.
