Humboldt Redwoods State Park encompasses 53,000 acres of forests, meadows, and watersheds and about 100 miles of hiking, biking, and riding trails. 17,000 acres consists of old-growth coast redwood forests.
The 32-mile Avenue of the Giants parallels 101 and winds its way through the Park. This road was originally build as a stagecoach and wagon road in the 1880′s.
I was actually brought to tears driving through this majestic place. Did I get out and hug a tree? You betcha! Some of these old redwoods were alive when the Magna Carta was signed.
About 3/4 through the 32 miles we stopped in Myers Flat at the Daily Grind for a Chai Latte. Civilization is never too far away in America.
