Description

Redwood National Park is co-managed with the state parks of California to protect nearly half of all remaining tallest trees on Earth, the Coastal Redwoods. In this extremely seismically active area, there are 37 miles of untouched coastline and praire and forest inland. There is an abundance of plant and wildlife both on the coast an inland including elk and mountain lions. Redwood National Park is free. There are no entrance stations, and thus you cannot buy the "Senior Pass" or the "Annual Pass" of the federal America the Beautiful Passes. Please note that some areas that are classified as state park areas do collect fees. Jedediah Smith, Del Norte Coast, and Prairie Creek Redwoods state parks collect day-use fees at developed campground entrance stations. These three California State Parks will honor the federal "America the Beautiful" series of passes and provide discounted pricing to pass holders. Holders of California State Parks passes will be able to use their state pass. In Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park there is an entrance fee to drive to Gold Bluffs Beach / Fern Canyon. This state park entrance fee will be waived to holders of federal "America the Beautiful" pass.

Free Pass with lock combination is now online only and takes 24-48 hrs. For more information, please see https://www.nps.gov/redw/planyourvisit/talltreespermits.htm Nice hike through a pretty remote part of Redwood National Park. To gain access to the trailhead you need to stop by the Kuchel visitor center on the coast to get a pass and the combination to the lock on the access gate. It is about 7 miles up to the gate from 101 and about 6 miles down to the trailhead from the gate. The little extra effort is worth it. The trail runs gently down to the Redwood River through some amazing groves of huge trees. It is about 1.5 miles down, then there is a 1 mile flat loop at the bottom with really interesting flora along with more huge trees.Show more

One of the North Coast’s most spectacular views at 600 feet above the river mouth. Scope Bald Eagle, Osprey, American Kestrel, Common and Pacific Loon, Red-necked and Western Grebe, Surf Scoter, and Black-legged Kittiwake. Common Murre and Pigeon Guillemot are seen in breeding season. Hillside below overlook is alive in spring with Allen’s Hummingbird, Wrentit, and Orange-crowned Warbler. May to June watch for migrating Black Swift among Vaux’s Swift and swallows. A steep trail near the parking lot entrance winds down the bluff to a viewing platform, best place to spot seals, sea lions, and whales. The ancestral territory of the Yurok people (People of the Salmon) extends from the mouth 40 miles upriver. They are the largest California tribe with continuous occupancy of their aboriginal lands and still maintain sovereign rights to fish for salmon in traditional ways.Show more
