Get ready to be amazed. You will see all kinds of wildlife and trails from wildlife. There are bears and elk and all kinds of critters. Stay in a group with someone experienced. These trails out here are LEGIT. Bring your binoculars.

What is going on when they string traffic lights across the redwood highway!? It was construction. Looks like they're widening the road. Maybe trying to straighten it a bit too. But it was the oddest thing to be driving through the redwood forest and come...More
