Myers Flat Things to Do
Redwoods are HUGE!!!
The redwoods are easily visited by driving up and down Avenue of the Giants road which runs right through the park. There are a variety of turnouts and parking areas, many of which feature trails with self-guided tours. The self-guided tours are usually short loops of about half or three-quarters of a mile long. There are a couple of places along the road which will let you drive your car through one of the trees (for a fee, of course).
The park contains the largest remaining old-growth redwood forest in the world. Some of the largest trees are here.
There are also some state-run camp grounds and a longer hiking trails in the park.
And the entire time I kept thinking I was on the forest moon of Endor. The redwood forest is so green and beautiful that it reminded me of the scenes from that famous movie. I later learned that parts of "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi" were indeed filmed in this park.Related to:
