Redwood National Park is most commonly known for being the home to the tallest trees on Earth. The ancient coast redwood ecosystem protected by the park contains some of the world's most spectacular forests. In additional to the majestic redwoods, visitors can explore oak woodlands, vast prairies, wild rivers, and nearly 40 miles of stunning coastline. The park is also home to an amazing diversity of life as well as a rich cultural history. A visit to the park is sure to provide visitors with a myriad of opportunities for inspiration, enjoyment, and education.

After the Ride: Local Favorites

North Coast Ocean Sports & Grill Loving the Shrimp Combo
Porcini Everything is good here. Had the fish and chips and lamb. Oh so good! The wait is worth it. Don't expect chain restaurant prices. $60 - $70 for a couple is not unreasonable to expect for 4 courses.
Harbor View Grotto Get the prawns and check out the trailer park down below.
Perlita's Authentic Mexican Food I'm a pretty big fan of their burritos. And the atmosphere is very casual and relaxing.
Vita Cucina Bakery & Gourmet Foods Everything is delicious! I always get a honey bran muffin, their breakfast bread pudding is great and they have coffee as well!
Wing Wah The service, staff, and food are all exceptional here.
383 M St, Crescent City CA — (707) 465-3935
Denny's Probably the best Denny's I've ever had. The eggs, ham, sausage, bacon and hashbrowns were all good. Still not as good as diner food though.
1225 5th St, Crescent City CA — (707) 464-2656
Papa Murphys Pizza
617 M St, Crescent City CA — (707) 465-4096
Trinidad Eatery Underrated! Ahi tuna is served with poke bowl-type ingredients – filling but fresh dish. Chowder is very quality, as well as the bread bowl it's served in. I'd eat outside though, the space is stuffy.
607 Parker St., Trinidad CA — (707) 677-3777
