See towering forests, ocean waves, and fern-covered canyons at Redwood National and State Parks. The life-list-worthy redwoods are reason enough to visit these combined national and state parks, but spring offers blooming skunk cabbage and swamp lantern, rushing mini waterfalls, and nine kinds of ferns along with the world’s tallest trees. Explore the otherworldly coastal ecosystem on this moderate 15.7-mile shuttle hike, where you’ll wind through spruce, alder, and hemlock and watch for wildlife like elk, black bears, and gray whales.
