Eons-old, the world's tallest trees are here. Still a youngster at 600, Hyperion stands over 379 feet tall! How high will he grow in the next 1000 years? Coastal Redwoods meet the sea in two unique environments - Trinidad's and in Big Basin near Santa Cruz.
Besides sand, surf, sea and trees, we're lucky to have the majestic Trinity Alps as great neighbors. These mountains are unrivaled in both their beauty and solitude. Though the second largest Wilderness in California, this is still no drive-in park. You'll need the fortitude of a grizzly to tackle this park's trails - plan on backpacking for a couple of days. For auto-touring, Lassen Volcanic National Park is a few hours east of the Alps and a must see with its hissing fumaroles and boiling mud pots.

If you have time, take the coastal way to San Francisco - State Route 1. It starts south of us at Leggett where there's a drive-thru tree opportunity. Wind through a redwood forest and pop out dramatically on the Coast. After Fort Bragg and Mendocino, there are opportunities to cut back to U.S. 101, but know you'll be missing some charming coastal towns. There are special Pinot Noir Wineries and Bahl Hornin' (good drinking in Bootling) at Beer Festivals along SR 128 in Anderson Valley ( AndersonValleyChamber.com ). If you make it all the way, don't miss the funky little town Bolinas at the southern tip of Point Reyes National Seashore. They frequently pull the sign down to keep it secret and avoid discovery. After Stinson and Muir Beach, SR 1 rejoins 101 close to Sausalito, and shares it on the Golden Gate to San Francisco.
