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.

Drive the Avenue of the Giants Scenic Highway surrounded by the tallest trees in the world, coastal redwoods and sequoias. These towering trees shade the highway (SR 254/US 101) with their giant trunks and broad leaves. Occasional clearings and pullouts afford spectacular views of distant mountains and the Eel River that skirts along the byway.
