Redwood National Park is the place where the tallest trees on Earth can be seen, along with vast prairies, oak woodlands, and wild riverways. It is located on California’s coast and for thousands of years people have lived in this landscape. Covered with a magnificent forest of coastal redwood trees, it comprises a region of coastal mountains bordering the Pacific Ocean north of San Francisco. Redwood National Park was established in 1968, at a time when the redwood population had decreased by 90%. There are many ways to experience and enjoy the landscape: by taking a long walk, choosing a scenic drive and driving-through Redwood tree, or having a go for a unique activity like a gondola ride through the Trees of Mystery. The picnic area at High Bluff Overlook is a great place for resting and having the opportunity to spot the whales, sea lions, brown pelicans, and, in spring and summer, thousands of seabirds nesting on offshore rocks. Lastly, the visitors can drive to Klamath River Overlook which is a prime spot for watching the gray whale migration.
