In what might be California’s most overlooked region, lonely beaches stretch to the horizon and redwoods tower over cars along Highway 101, which takes travelers north from the Bay Area to the border with Oregon. The North Coast region couldn’t be more different from sunny Southern California, with its developed shores and surf-town vibe; instead, the focus here is on nature, with the stretch known as the Lost Coast standing as one of California’s last true coastal wildernesses. The North Coast is famous for its redwoods, including three trees that you can drive straight through! While you're here, make sure you visit the Redwoods State and National Parks for a walk through nature, where these old, proud trees will leave you in awe. Located in the North Coast is Mendocino County, which has some fantastic wineries, some great places to eat, and a museum where you can learn all about the area's history. Much like the rest of California, North Coast has some great beaches, great food, and great wineries. It's an unmissable area if you're visiting California. Along with its natural beauty, the region beckons with fresh seafood, an inviting history and beautiful vistas that are easy to reach along the Pacific Coast Highway. Though small towns dot the region, traveling here (particularly in the off-season) can seem like you’re in an entirely different, almost unpopulated California.

This world-famous scenic drive is a 31-mile portion of old Highway 101, which parallels Freeway 101 with its 51,222 acres of redwood groves. It is by far the most outstanding display of these giant trees in the entire 500 mile redwood belt and is accessible to all with convenient services provided along the way. The Avenue of the Giants is surrounded by Humboldt Redwoods State Park which has the largest remaining stand of virgin redwoods in the world. Take time to picnic, camp, hike, swim, fish, raft or bike ride in the cool hush of these ancient redwood forests. Plus, you can drive through a redwood here...and really, who doesn't want to do that?
Redwood trees have long been a source of fascination for tourists to Northern California-- but with their imposing size, they really do have to be seen in person to be truly experienced. You can always hit one of the drive-thru trees (like the classic Tour-Thru Tree) on your trip, but it can be a lot nicer to actually get out of your car and stretch your legs (and not have to wait in line forever). Enter The Trees of Mystery a classic roadside attraction that will transport you back in time to the glory days of the road trip. The main attraction of The Trees of Mystery is their Kingdom of Giants trail, which gives you a good introductory lesson on redwood trees and what makes them so unique before taking you past some of the most interesting specimens you'll ever see. Their tallest redwood is called the Brotherhood tree, and at 297 feet tall, it's hard to imagine how big it was before it lost 74 feet off the top in a storm years ago. You can also see their Candelabra tree, a fallen redwood with several other trees growing out from its trunk, the twisting, massive roots of the Elephant tree, and the Cathedral tree, which is actually 9 seperate redwoods growing together as one-- the distinctive shape comes from the fact that the trees grew around a dead redwood, which rotted away over the years. Weddings and Easter celebrations are frequently held at the Cathedral tree. Trees of Mystery offers more than just unique tree formations and hikes as well. You can load yourself onto a gently swinging gondola for a ride up through the redwood forest and into the mountains, where you'll get a totally different view of the trees, as well as the surrounding landscape and the Pacific Ocean. There's also a museum dedicated to the artifacts and telling the history of the very first Americans-- the trees were especially important to Native Americans, so it makes sense that Trees of Mystery would want to honor them. And in keeping with the classic roadside attraction thing, they have a trail lined entirely with statues carved from redwoods-- some featuring everyone's favorite folk hero, Paul Bunyan. The Trees of Mystery even has a cafe and a classic roadside motel, which boasts an excellent location right near the beach. And as a souvenir, you can purchase a redwood seedling of your very own; it might not grow large enough to be able to drive through, but who knows! Only time will tell. -Roadtrippers We are an 8/10ths of a mile groomed interpretive trail through the awe-inspiring Redwoods of Northern California. Part of the trail (The Trail of Tall Tales) is devoted to the myth and mythology of Paul Bunyan, America's larger-than-life logger from the turn of the century. The trail, museum, gift shop, restaurant and motel are geared toward the family or group traveler. The trail is open and maintained year-round. We offer a shuttle to Sky Trail for those who cannot easily walk the trail. For us it has been a fifty year love affair with the Super natural magic of the Redwoods, the touring public and the wonder and amazement on the face of a five year old hearing Paul Bunyan say "Hi there, friend! Welcome to the Trees of Mystery!" In the summer months, our 49 foot 2 inch tall Paul Bunyan and his 35 foot tall friend, Babe the Blue Ox, waves and welcomes you to the Trees of Mystery. The free admission End of the Trail Native American museum is one of the very best privately owned collections in the world. Plan to spend at least half a day with us, there is much to see and do! The Trees of Mystery is located on Highway 101, 36 miles south of the Oregon border. We are 320 miles north of San Francisco. We are in the center of the Redwood forests of California, adjacent to the world famous Klamath river and of course, right on the Pacific Coast. The Candelabra tree is another example of the Redwoods incredible will to survive. A fallen Redwood will commonly send shoots up as new trees and indeed this is how many trees get their starts. This one is a remarkable specimen because of the open space underneath.
Located at the northern end of the Redwood Country near Klamath, the Tour-Thru Tree (named to avoid legal entanglements with the Drive-Thru Tree) offers a picnic table so that you can eat while watching others join the club you just joined.
The opening in the Chandelier Drive-Thru Tree was carved in the 1930's. To the right are Hazel and Charlie Underwood along with the foresters who helped carve the opening. At approximately 6' wide by 6'9" high there is ample space for the cars of today to pass through the tunnel. You will notice all of the roads in the Park are dirt roads, they are paved with "nature's speed bumps". Please heed the 5 mile an hour speed limit. If you drive slower you can enjoy the beauty and varied plants, or you might catch a glimpse of the deer hiding alongside the road.
Located along the Eel River in northern California, Humboldt Redwoods State Park contains some of the world's most majestic ancient redwood groves. The park encompasses over 53,000 acres, including 17,000 acres of old-growth coast redwoods. In 1921 Save the Redwoods League dedicated the first Memorial Grove, Colonel Raynal C. Bolling Memorial Grove, in what is now known as Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Today the park contains a diverse coast redwood ecosystem, which includes Rockefeller Forest, the largest remaining old-growth forest in the world, and the entire Bull Creek watershed. With more than 250 camp sites, 100 miles of hiking, biking, and riding trails, and the scenic 32-mile Avenue of the Giants, Humboldt Redwoods State Park offers something for everyone. Whether you have just a single day to visit or a week long vacation to explore, a journey into the redwood forest is sure to be an awe-inspiring experience. The park is open year 'round and recreational activities are available throughout the four seasons.Visit Humboldt Redwoods State Park
Thirty miles north of Eureka, Patrick’s Point State Park sits on a lushly forested promontory beside the Pacific Ocean. The one-square-mile park is densely packed with potential adventures. On a short walk around the perimeter of the park, you can hunt for agates, explore tidepools, and walk through a jungle of shrubs and trees as you peer out at seals, sea lions, and migrating whales. In the park’s interior, you’ll find a visitor center, a native plant garden, and a reconstructed Yurok plank-house village. You can picnic or wake up to birdsong at one of three campgrounds. In summer, you can witness a traditional ceremony at Sumêg Village or take a hike led by a docent or professional naturalist. Patrick's Point was also used in the movie Jurassic Park.Visit Patrick's Point State Park
