Humboldt Redwoods State Park

Search Weott California

For thousands of years the Sinkyone Indians lived in this area and left relatively little impact on the redwood forest, while using the trees for everything from baskets from the root fibers to logs for canoes. As elsewhere in California, the gold rush changed their way of life forever. In 1917, the organizers of the Save-the-Redwoods League visited the area and saw that the magnificent redwood forests of the area would be lost within a few years unless something was done to save them. Their concern and foresight led to the creation of the League in 1918. Today, Humboldt Redwoods State Park includes more than 52,000 acres offering groves of old growth coast Redwoods. The park offers more than 100 miles of hiking trails as well as abundant outdoor activities. Three campgrounds offer 250 campsites. Located 45 miles south of Eureka and 20 miles north of Garberville.
