Redwood National Park: The Coast

Welcome back to National Parks and other public lands with T!

Redwood National and State Parks➤

Redwood National and State Parks protect the world’s tallest trees. The park is unique in that it is a spread out confederation of state and national lands along the Northern California coast. The National Park Service, along with California’s Sate Park System, administer the sites together.

The 139,000 acre complex preserves prairies, rivers and coastline as well as the ancient redwood groves. While we visited Redwood National Park, we had the chance to see several of the different areas of the park.

Coastal Areas➤

While known for its forests, Redwood National Park also protects the Northern California coastline. The Coastal Trail begins in Crescent City and runs south for 70 miles.

We stayed on the beach just north of Crescent City at White Rock Resort. We enjoyed daily walks along the shore, exploring the rock formations and tidepools.
