These are some of the largest trees in the entire world and boy does it put things into perspective looking up at them from the ground.

THis place was so beautiful and really made us feel one with nature. A nice place to walk around and wonderful for children. We will be bringing our elderly parents here as we were very satisfied with this scenic experience.

Very cool to see the grove of titans. Be careful driving up into the forest, as the dirt road is filled with potholes and is slick.

One of the gems of the Pacific Northwest and one of my all-time favorite places to visit. Giant trees on the foggy coast. Be prepared for any type of weather but count on it being wet.

A beautiful place to appreciate our redwood trees. This park is set next to the Smith River so it's doubly amazing. Good area for kids.

The kids and I liked this park better than the state and national parks south of here. A lot less crowded and less tourists. Lots of locals (or at least they appeared to be) appreciate this part as well and that is a welcome site...More

They are all unique, but if you can only do one or two stops I recommend the Stout Grove and the Trees of Mystery further up the road.
