Big, Beautiful Standing Giants From California


Humboldt Redwoods State Park, located along the Eel River in northern California, contains some of the world’s most amazing ancient redwood groves.

The park spreads over 53,000 acres, including 17,000 acres of old-growth coast redwoods. In 1921, Save the Redwoods League dedicated the first Memorial Grove, Colonel Raynal C. Bolling Memorial Grove, in what is now known as ‘Humboldt Redwoods State Park’.

Today the park contains a diverse coast redwood ecosystem, which includes Rockefeller Forest, the biggest remaining old-growth forest in the world, and the entire Bull Creek watershed.

With more than 250 campsites, 100 miles of hiking, biking, and riding trails, and the scenic 32-mile Avenue of the Giants, Humboldt Redwoods State Park offers something for everyone.
