Big Basin Redwoods State Park

Home to some grand redwoods and terrain that varies from rocky coastal coves to dense forestland, the 18,000-acre Big Basin has a human history that dates back at least 10,000 years. The Cotoni and Quiroste Indians, part of the larger Ohlone cultural group, settled here long before Spanish explorers arrived in California. You can go on some fine nature walks both short and long here.
