This world-famous scenic drive is a 31-mile bypass on US 101, in Northern California. For more information, see our page Getting to the Avenue of the Giants.
The Avenue of the Giants is surrounded by Humboldt Redwoods State Park which has the largest remaining stand of old growth redwoods in the world. It is by far the most incredible display of these giant trees in the 500 mile redwood belt, and it is easily accessible from Highway 101.
Slow down to enjoy the scenic drive through these amazing trees. Better yet, stop to enjoy hiking trails, picnicking, camping, fishing, restaurants, lodging, shops and galleries along the way. Take time to picnic, camp, hike, swim, fish, raft or bike ride in the cool hush of the redwood forest.
