Among The Giants
Redwood National and State Parks is the realm of ancient giants. Ninty-six percent of coastal redwoods have been logged, but in the parks, trees as old as 2,000 years and tall as 379 feet tower over visitors. Of the parks’ 131,983 acres, 38,982 acres are old growth forest. In addition to the forests, the parks also span 40 miles of Pacific coastline. Redwood is an unusual partnership between the state of California and the federal National Parks System. As such, it is both a state and national park. Some parts are state administered and others federally. Enjoy four developed campgrounds and numerous trails.
