Eons-old, the world's tallest trees are here. Still a youngster at 600, Hyperion stands over 379 feet tall! How high will he grow in the next 1000 years? Coastal Redwoods only meet the sea in two unique environments - Trinidad and Big Basin near Santa Cruz.

Though the second largest Wilderness in California, this is still no drive-in park. You'll need the fortitude of a grizzly to tackle these trails and backpack for a couple of days to get deep inside. For driving, Lassen National Park is a few more hours away and definitely not-to-be-missed.
