Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, Northernmost Tip of California

Redwood map

Located not far from the border of Oregon, is the last in a long stream of redwood parks that stretch up the California coast.   Just drive 9-miles east from Crescent City (near the ocean) inland & you will find this untrammeled redwood forest.  This is one of the most “pure” of redwood parks.  You can’t find any trails or roads at its core, just towering trees.

Fortunately, you can enjoy the majesty of the surroundings from a rental cabin, which will have electricity, heaters, and lights!

I’ve read that these redwood groves are the most scenic in existence due to the variety in color and texture.  Some of these trees are much bigger in diameter than the redwoods to the south.  If you want to experience the most unspoiled vista of redwoods, this park is the place to visit!
