Part of the Avenue of the Giants Scenic Highway (SR 254) cuts through the edge of Humboldt Redwoods State Park. The park’s dense forest has three kinds of redwoods: coast redwood, giant sequoia and dawn redwood. The giant sequoia and coast redwoods, native to California, grow in excess of 360 feet. Oak, maple and pepperwood trees forest the surrounding hills.
