Redwood National Park Feature
Top Reasons to Go to Redwood National Park
Giant trees: These mature coastal redwoods are the tallest trees in the world.
Hiking to the sea: The park's trails wind between majestic redwood groves, and many connect to the Coastal Trail running along the western edge of the park.
Rare wildlife: Mighty Roosevelt elk favor the park's flat prairie and open lands; seldom-seen black bears roam the backcountry; trout and salmon leap through streams, and Pacific gray whales swim along the coast during their biannual migrations.
Stepping back in time: Hike Fern Canyon Trail, which weaves through a prehistoric scene of lush vegetation and giant ferns.
Cheeps, not beeps: Amid the majestic redwoods you're out of range for cell-phone service—and in range for the soothing sounds of warblers and burbling creeks.
