Big Basin Redwoods State Park is Califorina’s oldest state park, and contains some of the most ancient coast redwood trees in California. The oldest trees in the park are over 50 feet in circumference and between 1000 and 1800 years old. The establishment of the park in 1902 paved the way for the preservation and conservation movement in California.
With its 80 miles of trails, there is no shortage of places to explore. You’ll find waterfalls, animals, and birds among a variety of habitats including lush, fern-covered canyons, sunny chaparral, and of course towering old-growth and second-growth redwood forest.
