Redwood National Park, U.S.A
The Redwood National Park is immense in every sense of the word. The ancient forest is home to the world’s tallest living things, gargantuan redwood trees which can grow to up to heights of 360 foot and can live for 2000 years. The verticality and longevity of the forest giants gives the atmosphere a timeless feeling, and walking amongst the trails is a truly fulfilling experience. The forest once covered two million acres, but heavy logging has reduced it to just 133,000 acres in Humboldt County. Thankfully, the State of California realised the danger posed to the natural wonder and stepped in to protect it before it was lost forever. The parks also protect vast prairies and oak woodlands alongside the famous Redwoods, as well as several wild rivers which spill into 40 miles of often untouched coastline. Gaze upon majestic Roosevelt elk from one of the numerous trails which dissect the forest, and spot huge migrating grey whales at the Klamath River Overlook where the river meets the mighty Pacific Ocean.

Where is it?
The Park is located on the north coast of California in northern Humboldt County, and runs into the coast of neighbouring Del Norte County.

What is it?
The Redwood National Park is an amalgamation of three California state parks, Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park, and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, designed to protect the massive redwood trees from further deforestation.

Best time to visit?
It’s best to visit in spring or autumn to avoid the huge crowds which visit in the summer and the torrential rain which visits the Park in the winter. Arrive in autumn, September and October are best, for the advantage of the changing of the deciduous trees colour.

Must See?
In a forest of colossal trees, you really have to see the one that stands above the rest. ‘Hyperion’ stands above its neighbours at an incredible 379.1 feet tall, nearly six stories higher than the Statue of Liberty in New York. The tallest tree on earth certainly makes you crane your neck, but the unrivalled sight is certainly worth it!
