Humboldt Redwoods State Park

Located along the scenic Avenue of the Giants, at the southern end of Humboldt County, is California's largest redwood state park 

Humboldt Redwoods SP encompasses 53,000 acres, with 17,000 acres of ancient old-growth coastal redwoods, the largest remaining contiguous old-growth coastal redwoods in the world. The trees here are thousands of years old and have never been logged. 

Here you will find the Rockefeller Forest, home of The Giant Tree, a 354' tall and 16.9' wide giant, Founder's Grove (easy hike) and the fallen Dyerville Giant, and one of the last remaining drive thru redwood trees the Shrine Drive Thru Tree.
