Fodor's Review

Best known for its beach, this park is a prime abalone diving spot. Upland trails lead through lush riparian habitat and the bizarre Pygmy Forest, where acidic soil and poor drainage have produced mature cypress and pine trees that are no taller than a person. The visitor center has displays on ocean life and the historical significance of the redwood lumber industry along the coast.
