Redwood National and State Parks are a string of protected forests, beaches and grasslands along Northern California’s coast. The trees in California that people call “redwoods” are actually two distinct species – giant sequoias and coastal redwoods, both of them best described in superlatives like tallest, biggest, most massive, or magnificent.
Here is a bench to view the coastal redwoods of California.
