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.
