The Redwoods have such a mythical, magical beauty and most people would place them high on the RV travel bucket list. Personally, we’ve been dreaming about hugging a Redwood tree for as long as memory serves. Well, we finally got our chance to visit, and this week’s podcast is all about the highlights and recommendations from our time spend in the Redwoods National and State Parks.
This podcast episode is paired with Campground of the Week #94, and our complete review of the Crescent City/ Redwoods KOA can be heard on that podcast.
Segment One: Learning about the Redwoods
We are nerdy teachers who love to RV, so we have some great recommendations for you if you would like to bone up on your tree facts before a visit. We also share the resources that helped us out the most during our stay.
- Best Easy Day Hikes: Redwood National and State Parks, by Dan Brett
- The Wild Trees by Richard Preston
- Climbing Redwood Giants, a National Geographic Documentary
Segment Two: Hiking in the Redwoods
We hiked almost every day during our stay, and in this segment we talk about our favorites. Listen to hear our learning curve on appropriate clothing and foot wear, timing, and where to eat that picnic lunch.
- The Hiouchi Trail to Stout Grove
- Ladybird Johnson Grove Trail
Segment Three: The Coast
After oohing and aahing over the trees for a couple of days, we appreciated the variety of scenery found along the coast in Redwoods National Park. In fact, some of our favorite experience were in the coastal areas of the Redwoods.
- Yurok Trail to Hidden Beach
- Fern Canyon
- Crescent City
