Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park is one of the three state parks located within the Redwood National and State Parks system. Within its boundaries, there are scenic picnic areas along the Pacific Ocean, hikes through old growth redwoods, and a campground to use as a home base while enjoying the area. Wilson Creek, located along Hwy 101, is a destination visitors cannot miss if they are seeking a relaxing stop to walk along the beach or to have a picnic with splendid views of sea stacks on this rugged coastline. Farther north on Hwy 101, near mile marker 16, a visitor can challenge themselves to a hike through old growth redwoods, leading into Sitka spruce transition zones and ending at the Pacific Ocean on Damnation Creek trail. Using the Damnation Creek trailhead also gives visitors access to the Coastal trail. The Mill Creek Campground is also located along Hwy 101, which is the largest campground within Redwood National and State Park. After traveling down the 2.5 mile long driveway, a visitor can enjoy a peaceful evening of camping in a second growth redwood forest. Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park is just one of the many hidden gems this area has to offer in Northern California.
