The Magic of the Redwoods

Roaming through the Redwoods is nothing short of enchanting. Picture being surrounded by ancient forests, boots on the ground, and the scent of adventure in the air. Sunlight plays hide and seek through the towering branches, giving the whole place an ethereal glow.

Ah, it’s breathtaking! Mother Nature really decided to show off with trees covered in ferns, and elk casually strolling through. Yeah, it’s that cool.

Tree Giants of the Redwoods

The Redwoods are nature’s version of a history book—each tree is a chapter telling tales of centuries gone by. Yes—centuries! Did you know that Redwoods can live for over 2,000 years? Talk about ancient wisdom, standing tall since before your Grandma’s Grandma’s Grandma was even born!

But the cool factor doesn’t stop there. These green giants are eco-warriors, absorbing and storing more carbon dioxide than any other tree on the planet. So, as we crane our necks to marvel at their beauty, they’re working double-time, and we’re thankful for their forest-saving efforts! 🙏

And then, there’s the showstopper, Hyperion—a Redwood reaching a staggering height of 379.7 feet. Imagine gazing up at a tree the size of a skyscraper; it has a way of making you feel both grounded and light as a feather, all in the same moment. Did you know that these towering tree giants are native only to this area of the world? Utterly fascinating!

Now, with the giants as our backdrop, it’s time to lace up those hiking boots and embark on the best way to witness these towering marvels—hiking the Redwoods trails.

Hiking the Redwoods Trails

As you hike through the ancient forests, keep an eye out for hidden alcoves, fern-covered glades, and spots where the forest floor is carpeted with a kaleidoscope of fallen leaves. These are the secret treasures that make the trails come alive.

Our biggest tip for hiking the Redwood trails? Don’t rush. Let the enchantment of the Redwoods unfold step by step.

More Tips for Hiking in the Redwoods

Kayaking on the Redwood Coast

Let’s switch gears from trails to water, because who says adventures can’t be a little wet and wild? If you ask us, kayaking in Big Lagoon is worthy of a top spot on your Redwoods bucket list!

Tucked away seven miles north of Trinidad on the Northern California coast, this hidden gem is your escape from the daily grind. As you paddle through the mellow waters, you’re treated to a show of towering redwood forests, sandy beaches, and rugged bluffs—so have your camera ready!

Whether you’re cruising the sheltered inlets or checking out the 3-mile sandbar, every second is a blend of tranquility and jaw-dropping beauty. Big Lagoon has a way of slowing down time, and you won’t want to miss a second. 🛶
