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, o�ten, 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 o�fer superb settings for outdoor, art and taste discoveries.

Redwood National and State Parks


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.

Avenue of the Giants and

Humboldt Redwoods State Park


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 o�fers an excellent alternate drive in southern Humboldt County. Mostly �lat 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.

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, cli�f-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.

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 �lourished 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 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
