The bulk of redwood trees room along the north California coast, so flying right into San Francisco is your best option.

You have your an option of Armstrong Redwoods, Redwoods nationwide Park, path of the Giants. All room on the method to Seattle, i beg your pardon is fairly a long drive indigenous SF. You'll desire to do this over several days.

I would also try to fit in the Columbia river Gorge near Portland, if you have the right to afford the time. Numerous gorgeous scenery and stunning waterfalls.


Hi Michael M, and also welcome to bromheads.tv forums.

You'll most likely want to article on the California and also the Oregon coast forums for your plans. Yosemite has large Sequoias like you observed at Sequoia national Park.

California: http://www.bromheads.tv/ShowForum-g28926-i29-California.html

Oregon Coast: http://www.bromheads.tv/ShowForum-g1438848-i12636-Oregon_Coast_Oregon.html

I expect you have actually a exorbitant trip.


Redwood national Park is in far northwest California. The is the area wherein you will view seemingly countless miles of huge redwoods, add to beautiful beaches, rivers, lagoons and so on. It is a long narrow park, around 40-50 mile lengthy stretching between just phibìc of Eureka to Crescent City near the Oregon border.

It's around a 6+ hour drive to this area from san Francisco via Hwy 101. The road is great - lot of the is freeway and also four lanes. It is inland and a satisfied drive. Plan on safety at least two days in the redwoods.

From the redwoods, it counts on exactly how much time you have actually for your trip? acquisition the lovely coastline route, girlfriend should allow at least 4 nights to acquire to Seattle.

Two other options are Arcata/Eureka airport which is best in the redwood realm or Medford airport in Medford, Oregon around three hours away. However, prices will certainly be higher for both your flight plus probably much more expensive for a one means rental car.

There space Sierra redwoods and seaside redwoods.http://www.nps.gov/parkhistory/online_books/shirley/sec12.htm

Closest airport come Yosemite (for Sierra redwoods) is Merced, though from there you need to take the YARTS bus. Or rent a car. Really hard as a day trip. Fresno is closest to Sequoia/Kings Canyon nationwide Parks. Several of the over posts give points from which to watch the coastal redwoods. Perhaps fly to Eureka or Crescent City. Would be an expensive flight.

There's so much great mountain see close to Seattle (e.g., Mt.Rainier NP, Olympic NP).

Sorry, missed that. Redwoods nationwide Park won't be simple to fly to, as noted. They can fly come the SF bay Area and visit Muir Woods that would certainly be an expensive triip for just the one location.
