A WONDERLAND FOR NATURE LOVERS
California’s Redwood Coast H
Shrine Drive-Thru Tree Daniel Cheek/DanCheek.com
umboldt County is known the world over as the home of the Giant Sequoias. 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 towering champions along the Avenue of the Giants. Their magnificent size and age, and the quiet of the groves has inspired many artists, writers and musicians, but they need to be experienced in person. Smaller redwood forests impress, but here in Humboldt County, standing amongst the giants stirs profound emotions. 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. Come see why Lonely Planet, the world’s most popular travel brand, selected the Redwood Coast in 2018 as the best destination in the United States.

Avenue of the Giants and Humboldt Redwoods State Park I n southern Humboldt, the famed Avenue of the Giants, 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 runs parallel to Highway 101. Mostly flat with gentle curves, it passes through secluded hamlets, campgrounds, picnic areas, river overlooks and trails.
Winding through 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 passes through Humboldt Redwoods State Park, one of Californiaâ€™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 awe-inspiring collections of champion trees.
Avenue of the Giants Paul Lovine 4 | Californiaâ€™s Redwood Coast
More See & Do Do Ten Must Must-See Founders Grove. The giant trees here sparked the creation of Save the Redwoods League 100 years ago. The park has six such rare Albino redwood trees, including the striking Christmas Tree. Picnic & Swim.

The Lost Coast I
n Southern Humboldt is the longest undeveloped shoreline in the continental United States, this nearly 110-mile pristine coast displays virtually no signs of civilization, except for the remote outpost of Shelter Cove. The reason? The imposing King Range Mountains rise 4,000 feet above the coast, ensuring that development could not detract from the breath-taking views. Here one can backpack on the coast for three days and share the company of only seals, seabirds, crabs and whales. Lost Coast treks include a legendary hike-in surf break, hidden abalone crags and tide pools, cliff-top fields of wild poppies, one of the nation’s best single-track bike trails, and the abandoned but picturesque lighthouse, Punta Gorda in Petrolia.

Eureka - A Victorian Seaport
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 an open air museum of architecture, dedicated to preserving one of the finest and largest collections of Victorian homes in the world.
The most photographed Victorian Mansion in California, Eureka’s Carson Mansion was built 1884 by lumber magnate, William Carson.
Old Town Gary Todoroff
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. Nearby Redwood Acres hosts fun events, shops and a native plant garden. 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. Pride Enterprises leads architectural tours in the Victorian business district. And Haunted History Ghost Tours in Old Town follows in the ethereal footsteps of many notorious Eurekans. For more ideas, stop in the Eureka Visitor Center (see map).
