Northern California’s Most Scenic Drives Through the Redwoods

avenue-frontThere is a good chance that you have seen images of cars cruising on the world-famous Avenue of the Giants. When it comes to scenic drives through California’s ancient Redwood Forest this 31-mile portion of old Highway 101 has been featured in countless photo shoots that highlight the magnificent giant trees along this easily accessible route. Although the Avenue of the Giants has some of the most impressive trees in the entire redwood belt, we would like to take you off of this beaten path for a moment to three more of Northern California’s most scenic drives through the redwoods.

1. Howland Hill Road – Located just a few miles outside of Crescent City, CA, this mostly unpaved 10-mile long stretch of road takes motorists through the heart of Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park.  Be prepared to encounter towering old growth redwood trees up close and personal from the comfort of your vehicle. Or adventure out onto any of the numerous marked trailheads that shoot off from the road. Also, be sure to be on the look out for Ewoks because this is where they filmed Star Wars: Return of the Jedi! Truly a magnificent drive.

2. Newton B. Drury Parkway – Six miles North of the town of Orick, CA. lies one of the not to be missed scenic drives through the redwoods. Named after the once executive secretary of the Save-the-Redwoods League in California, this 10-mile long alternative to Highway 101 takes you through the heart of Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park where you will encounter ancient old growth forests, numerous trailheads, and almost certainly herds of famous redwoods residents, the Roosevelt Elk. This route also takes you to a 100-yard paved trail that leads to the famous “Big Tree”, a coastal redwood measuring a whooping 304 feet tall and 21 feet in diameter!

cropped-redwoodcoast.jpg3. Coastal Drive  – Just beyond the redwood curtain you will find the this narrow coastal road that provides some of the most amazing panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Klamath River estuary. This 9-mile loop offers excellent opportunities for whale watching from multiple breathtaking overlooks along the route. Be sure to take a look at the old farmhouse closely, it is actually a historic World War II radar station! Great hiking trails and backcountry camping can also be accessed from Coastal Drive if you are in search of a more rugged adventure. Be aware that some sections of this road may be closed seasonally due to landslides but may still be explored on foot or by bicycle.

If you are visiting sometime soon be sure to check out listings for vacation homes located near these three most scenic drives through the redwoods. These vacation rentals near Redwoods National Park are the perfect home base for exploring the Redwood Coast region and these scenic drives through the redwoods.

Humboldt County Fall and Winter Travel Tips

The Redwood Coast receives an influx of tourists year round, but Humboldt County Fall and Winter travel offer visitors some special perks that you just won’t get during the other seasons. Here we have compiled a short list of some of our favorite Humboldt County Fall and Winter Travel advantages. So get your rain boots on, umbrellas out, and get ready to explore the Redwood Coast with these fun Humboldt County fall and winter travel tips.

1. Redwood National Park have few visitors.

475P4trail.bmpFor those seeking solitude and more desolate trails, the fall and winter months are the time to visit. In 2014 alone Redwood National Park received 429,166 visitors. That translates to roughly 1,175 people per day exploring the park. However, the majority of these visitors come during the summer months, leaving many of the park’s trails wide open in the winter. Weather in the redwoods during winter remains moderate and although rain is likely in the fall and winter months, the dense forests provide a marvelous canopy that acts sort of like natures umbrella.

2. Waterfalls are flowing.

2015 Marked an extremely dry year all Trillium4across the globe. But with El Nino heading toward California in the months to come it is being predicted that this winter will be a wet one. For many reasons this is wonderful news, but it also makes for great waterfall viewing opportunities throughout Humboldt County & Six River National Forest. Some of our favorite Humboldt County coastal waterfalls include Trillium Falls, Fern Canyon, and Mill Creek Falls located in McKinleyville, CA.

3. Fall Colors Are Popping

Big Leaf Maple 11/2/2015 Max Forster

Max Forster pretty much summed this up on his recent trip to photograph Avenue of the Giants in Southern Humboldt. Although there are many places in the county to catch the fall splendor, it is here at Avenue of the Giants where the best maples can be seen. Check out the rest of Max Forster’s Avenue of the Giant fall photo shoot here.

4. The Great Migration 

humpback-whale-436115_640 November – January marks the peak of the southern migratory season for whales. As they make their way toward Baja California an estimated 15,000 whales pass by the shores of Humboldt County. Head out in the early morning hours to any cliff overlooking the ocean and your chances of sighting them are very good. Patricks Point or Trinidad Head are great places to start. Also for you birders out there, many species of migratory birds can be sighted during winter months in the Humboldt Bay. December’s “Christmas Bird Counts” are are said to be the top 20 in the entire nation. Check with the Redwood Region Audubon Society for more great info about bird walk and birdwatching tours.

 5. Forest Foraging for Fungi 
Craterellus_tubaeformis_500x332Along with with the first rains comes mushroom hunting season in Humboldt County. From November and on you can find a plethora of species in the forests throughout the region. Humboldt County’s mild yet wet winters allow for optimal picking well into the cooler winter months also. Boletes, matsutakes, hedgehogs, and candy caps tend to pop out earlier in the hunting season, while black trumpets and yellowfoot chanterelles appear in the later part of winter. If you are not sure exactly how honed in your identification skills are, The Humboldt Bay Mycology Society has filed trips schedule throughout December and beyond. These trips are a great way to get out into the field with experts who can show you some of Humboldt’s foray sites. Definitely something yummy to look forward to on cold, wet Humboldt County winter days.
