Walk, bike, camp or horseback through the 200 miles of trails found here. Special sites include Jedediah Smith Redwoods, Del Norte Coast Redwoods, and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Parks. Discover forests, rivers and the majestic coastline support a rich array of wildlife such as elk, whales, seals and more. The diverse parks also offer many opportunities for scenic drives.
