“surrounded by natural beauty”

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?

The highlight of our trip. Although some groves further north are bigger, these are by far the most impressive. The trees up north have lots of underbrush that don't allow you to walk right up to them. The trees in the Avenue of giants have no brush underneath, just carpets of clovers. If you only have time to stop at a few groves, we recommend Founders Grove (home of the Dyerville Giant) and Rockefeller Grove (our personal favorite of the whole trip).

We googled "must see trees Humboldt, CA" and made our way to "Tall Tree" which was within the Avenue of the Giants, but off the beaten path. Absolutely worth it! So giant, so special!

Very impressive trees. Make sure to stop by the visitors center to learn more about their history and survival.

This detour from the 101 is definitely worth it. We drove along the winding Avenue of the Giants where through huge, enchanting sequoias and redwoods. Be sure to check out the visitor's center. There are plenty of campsites in the area during the warmer months.

Realising we'd be driving through the Avenue of the Giants at night we changed our plans and camped at a rest stop just past Laytonville on the 101 for the night so we could get up early in the morning and have a short 45 minute drive to the Avenue of the Giants south entrance. We are so glad we did. We largely had the whole 50+ mile circuit to ourselves and it was beautiful.

The magnificence of these ancient trees is so much greater in real life than photos can convey--though their size alone is truly breathtaking. Even dead and uprooted, the trunk is as big as a garage for our car. To think that the trees have been there for millennia is a most humbling thought, and a reassuring one. There is no question that man is not so powerful, when, thank God, mere trees outlive his foolishness. In my opinion, these trees are a must see-- if not here, at least somewhere along the way.

Have been traveling through this area for almost my entire 31 years- this is a must see. Reminds me of Return of the Jedi, Darby O'Gill and the Little People- and is just a beautiful drive. If you have the time to stop and hike, some of those hikes are relatively low impact and good for kids who need to stretch their legs.

Loved it! Great drive to take. Lots of places to pull over and explore. Even some little stores to get to easily for bathroom breaks, or food and gift shop stuff.

Can someone make this into a Scenic Drive in addition to the Point of Interest address that is already listed?
