wonderland for nature lovers, Humboldt is renowned as the home of the coast redwoods. Half of the remaining old growth survivors of this ancient species reside here, including the world’s tallest tree in Redwood National Park and the amazing champions along the Avenue of the Giants. Images, songs and words have tried to capture them, but those who have fallen under their spell, from presidents to poets to picture takers, declare they must be seen in person. Redwoods impress in smaller forests, but here in their ultimate glory, like DaVincis or Monets, these masterpieces stir profound emotions: tears, smiles, laughter and, often, utter silence. For those who make the pilgrimage, the 2,000-year-old big trees are only the beginning of a California adventure. The legendary Lost Coast, Bigfoot Country and Victorian seaports and villages offer superb settings for outdoor, art and taste discoveries.

The Jewel in the Crown

Redwood National & State Parks

H

ome of the world’s tallest trees, this World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve protects nearly half the remaining old growth redwoods, including championsized specimens more than 370 feet (113 meters) in height, or five stories taller than the Statue of Liberty. Notables include Big Tree, the Libby Tree, and Corkscrew Tree. Walk, bike, camp or horseback ride along 200 miles of trails in the park system, which includes Jedediah Smith Redwoods, Del Norte Coast Redwoods and Prairie Creek Redwoods state parks, about 40 minutes north of Eureka. The forests, mountains, rivers and coast support a rich mosaic of life, including Roosevelt elk (North America’s largest), whales, seals, and seasonal wildflowers such as lupine and rhododendrons.

Ten Must-Dos 1. Newton Drury Scenic Parkway. The tall trees on this 10mile road rival the Avenue of Giants. 2. Fern Canyon.

Cross a rustic footbridge and enter a paradise on a gentle, 1.5-mile trail. 6. Tall Trees Grove. Perhaps the most magnificent redwood grove. The hike’s worth the challenge. 7. Elk Meadow. Picnic areas and trailheads overlook the parks’ most dependable Roosevelt elk watching. 8. Cal-Barrel Road. This pet-friendly 2-mile back road crosses some of the best redwood trails. 9. Prairie Creek Visitor Center. Displays, bookstore, old growth trailheads, elk views. North of Orick. 10. Thomas Kuchel Information Center.

Avenue of the Giants and

Humboldt Redwoods State Park

T

his famed road, easily the most scenic among the redwoods, has been called the finest forest drive in the world. Lined by titan trees, the 31-mile stretch parallels Highway 101 and offers an excellent alternate drive in southern Humboldt County. Mostly flat with gentle curves, it passes secluded towns, campgrounds, picnic areas, river overlooks and trails to natural wonders like the Founders Grove, which inspired conservationists to save the trees; and the Eel River, a federally designated Wild & Scenic waterway with idyllic swimming, fishing and paddling spots. The Avenue winds through Humboldt Redwoods State Park, one of California’s oldest and largest parks, which includes the 10,000-acre Rockefeller Forest, the largest stand of old growth redwoods; and Bull Creek Flats, one of the densest and most awesome collections of champion trees.

Eel River Humboldt Redwoods State Park 4 | California’s Redwood Coast

www.redwoods.info

Ten Must-Dos 1. Avenue of the Giants. This 31-mile road is perhaps the most amazing forest drive in the world.

6. Children’s Forest. Easy loop trail under a mile; great for kids to experience the big trees.

2. Shrine Drive-Thru Tree. Of three such redwoods, only this one in Myers Flat has a naturally cleaved tunnel.

7. Run a Race. The Avenue hosts marathons and shorter courses each spring and fall.

3. Founders Grove. The giant trees here sparked the creation of Save the Redwoods League.

8. Lost Coast Drive. Bull Creek Flats/Mattole Rd leads to giant trees and state’s wildest beaches.

4. Albino Trees. Park has six such rare redwoods, including the striking Christmas Tree.

9. Picnic or Swim. Women’s Federation Grove has great lunch spots and kid friendly swimming holes.

5. Rockefeller Forest. This 10,000-acre preserve is the largest contiguous stand of old growth titans.

10. Park Visitor Center. See all three redwood species and an RV made from a redwood trunk. South of Weott.

The Lost Coast and

Humboldt’s Best Parks & Beaches Sequoia Park Zoo Richard Stenger

T

he longest undeveloped shoreline in the continental United States, this nearly 100mile expanse displays virtually no signs of civilization, except for the remote outpost of Shelter Cove. The reason? The imposing King Range Mountains jut 4,000 feet above the coast, ensuring that development could not encroach, and breath-taking views are everywhere. Here one can backpack on the coast for three days and share the company of only seals, seabirds, crabs and whales. Rewards of Lost Coast treks include a legendary hike-in surf break, hidden abalone crags and tide pools, cliff-top fields of wild poppy, one of the nation’s best single-track bike trails, and the abandoned but picturesque Alcatraz of lighthouses, Punta Gorda. Want to experience the Wild West frontier? This is the wildest and most westerly paradise in the lower 48 states.

of Victorian homes in the world. Nowhere is Eureka’s heritage more evident than Old Town (below), a meticulously restored district of shops, restaurants, galleries and museums. Many special events, including the Arts Alive! art walk on the first Saturday of each month, take place in Old Town, which boasts a nationally recognized arts district. The Eureka Boardwalk, Fisherman’s Plaza and Hikshari Trail provide waterfront views of Humboldt Bay, which teems with sea birds, seals, sea lions

and fishing boats. Other popular attractions include the Samoa Cookhouse, serving lumberjack meals since 1890, and Sequoia Park & Zoo, a redwood forest with hiking trails, playgrounds and zoo with an otter water park, red pandas, monkeys, petting barn and cafe. The Madaket, the nation’s oldest passenger ferry boat, has offered bay cruises for more than a century. Below deck is the state’s smallest licensed bar. For history buffs, Old Town Carriage Co. offers horse-powered heritage tours and romantic rides. And Haunted History Ghost Tours in Old Town follows in the ethereal footsteps of many notorious Eurekans.

Old Town Mark Lufkin

magine an era of gracious living, grand mansions, arts and fine dining. In the city of Eureka that era is now. Founded in 1850 as a shipping center for the Trinity gold mines, Eureka flourished through fishing, farming and especially logging. While the waterfront district built her reputation as a lusty, brawling timber town, her quiet neighborhoods grew more elegant as prosperous Eurekans built substantial homes from enduring redwood. Today the Victorian Seaport is a virtual open air museum of architecture, dedicated to preserving one of the finest and largest collections
