Highway 101 several hours north of San Francisco runs through some amazing old growth redwood groves that are not only beautiful to look at as you drive through the park, but worth stopping for a walk deeper into the woods. There are very few large tracts of old growth redwood left in California and this one is one of the... 更多
Avenue of the Giants is State Route 254, which runs parallel to the 101. Very scenic drive which goes thru some small towns. There are multiple places that you can exit hwy 101 to drive the Avenue of the Giants. Nice places to stop for photo opps or just enjoy the view. Truly makes you appreciate the redwoods!!
This wonderful little road gets you off of Hwy 101 and threads you through the beautiful Redwoods. If you have a sunroof, open it so can see the tops of these giants. And drive slowly so their magic permeates your soul. Make sure you give yourself enough time to drive the route both ways. Worth it.
New to the Eureka/Fortuna area, we decided to explore...with our parents in tow...The Avenue of Giants, was first on the list. As we pulled off of Hwy 101, onto the "Avenue of the Giants" a feeling of utmost, calming...relaxing...love, every positive emotion imaginable, came over, all that was in the truck. The sight of the Redwood Forest, oak, wild ferns,... 更多
Access to the Avenue of Giants is just north of Garberville (from the south) or south of Fortuna (from the north) and the 50 km-long route more or less follows US 101, though on a smaller, more torturous and less frequented road. Apart from the eponymous redwoods, visitors can expect to cross a number of small towns, campgrounds and plenty... 更多
My daughter and I took my 3 grandchildren to the Avenue of the Giants in October. Their ages are 3, 5 & 9 and they had the time of their lives. They played and climbed and pretended they were hobbits! When it was time to get back in the car & go, they didn't want to leave. What a wonderful,... 更多
This is easily one of the most beautiful drives that you will ever take. The road follows the old Highway 101 route (it's now been labeled State Route 254) and you are essentially traveling trough old growth redwood groves. It's worthwhile picking up a brochure about the drive – they're available throughout the businesses in the area and from some... 更多
This is the most beautiful road I've been on. You can easily pull over and go and wander through the gorgeous trees. There weren't many people there, so it was great to have complete silence to enjoy the beauty.
The Avenue of the Giants is a 31 mile drive parallel to Highway 101 which features hikes/trails/campsites amongst untouched groves of redwoods. The trails are beautiful and leave one awestruck at the size and beauty of the ancient forests. Give yourself a full day to ramble through the forest and soak in the healing, magical energy of the redwoods.
