Just a couple miles west of Crescent City, an unpaved stretch of Howland Hill Road offers motorists an intimate encounter with the towering old-growth redwoods in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. There are numerous pull-outs and trailheads along the way, offering many opportunities for photo comps. The road also provides access to various trailheads including the Boy Scout Tree Trail and Stout Grove. (From the U.S National Park Service website). This is bear country so be “bear aware”.

Photography Tips

Fog is common in coastal redwood forests, making for interesting compositions. A wide angle lens is useful to capture the massive redwood trees.
