Redwood National Park is most famously known for its magnificent coast redwoods, the tallest trees in the world. While many of these impressive groves can be seen in any of the three redwood state parks, visitors will find a diverse mosaic of landscapes within the surrounding national park boundary.
The national park includes over 75 miles of trails and more than 40 miles of coastline to explore, with access to some of the most impressive tide pools on the north coast. Hike east along the Redwood Creek Trail and catch a glimpse of native aquatic wildlife, including river otters and the elusive Steelhead. Drive inland on Bald Hills Road to access Redwood Creek Trailhead, Lady Bird Johnson Grove and Tall Trees Access Road*.
Redwood National Park also has three visitor centers for park inquiries and souvenir shopping.
Back-country camping can be found in several locations throughout the park; free permits are available at either Thomas H. Kuchel Visitor Center or the Hiouchi Visitor Center.
*Tall Trees Access Road/Tall Trees Grove permits are free and only available at Thomas H. Kuchel Visitor Center.
