Located on the West Coast of California, Redwood National Park and the Del Norte Coast, Prairie Creek and Jedediah Smith
Redwoods State Parks cover 133,000 acres of parkland with over 322km of trails.
The ancient old-growth sequoias are capable of reaching unbelievable statures of 112m and widths of 7m, which is the equivalent of a 37-storey skyscraper. Some of these redwoods are an incredible 2,000 years old (most still achieve a modest age of 600).
Your choice of hiking is huge. The 16-mile Redwood Creek Trail is one of the best two-day routes you can complete. It also includes views of Hyperion, the tallest tree on the planet (115.61m).
You can even scale 200ft redwoods in Northern California's Santa Cruz Mountains if you book a guided tour wth Tree Climbing Planet. Climbing parties are small and only happen once a year, so be prepared to join a long waiting list.
