No drive up the California coast would be complete without driving (and ideally hiking) through Avenue of the Giants. There aren't words or pictures that can grasp the magnitude of these trees and the utter silence that falls in the forest as soon as you step off the road. These giants seem to live in a world all their own, casting a spell over anyone who wanders through them. What a delightful drive in a serene little corner of the world.

Of course you should take this drive! There are many spots to pull over and wander through the redwood groves. The Eel River flows behind the groves and can be accessed by a quick walk through the woods. We spent most of a day driving, stopping, looking, photographing, and hiking. It was well worth it.

Much more impressive than I imagined it would be. I always wanted to witness the Redwoods since I was a kid in Texas thumbing through encyclopedias looking at pictures of them. Was sad to leave this area when it was time to go. Awesome!!

Gorgeous drive. It's well worth your time to drive through all the giants regardless of how much time you spend camping and hiking around. Truly impressive.

This is an amazing drive no matter where you begin along the route! Great stops along the way to get out and explore.

One of the prettiest drives anywhere around. When I was young it was the only highway there. My 1st memory of it was at the age of 10...

I loved the Avenue of the Giants. Its so calming driving between the tallest trees in the world. A great place to stop is the Immortal Tree, which is located at the end of the drive right before you get back onto the 101.
