Humboldt Redwoods State Park is the third largest state park in California, over 53,000 acres, and features the largest remaining old-growth redwood forest in the world. The park contains a complete old-growth redwood ecosystem and protects not only the forest but the drainage areas that feed the forest. The South Fork Eel and Main Stem Eel Rivers pass through 30 miles of the park, and elevations range from 200 feet to 3379 feet. In addition to redwood forests there are ancient Douglas Fir forests, a wide variety of hardwood species, riparian areas along the rivers and creeks, and open prairies. Mammals range from bears and mountain lions to tiny tree vols, salmon and steelhead spawn here, and bird life is abundant.

The park is open all year. 75% of visitors come in the dry and warm months of June, July, and August. During the rainy season, usually October to April, access to some backcountry trails is limited due to seasonal bridges being out. 4. Fees
