Avenue of the Giants
Enter the forest deep and be transported into a fairy-tale landscape. The Avenue of the Giants is 31 miles of old Highway 101, paralleling today's modern-day freeway US-101. Take an automobile tour through these ancient, massive redwood trees with stops along the way at interpretive signs. Other great activities include biking, fishing, hiking, swimming and picnicking. The Humboldt Redwoods State Park Visitor Center is a good place to buy informative books and maps.
