Redwood National Park

The tallest trees on earth can be found in Redwood National Park along 40 miles of California coast. The tallest tree in the park, named Hyperion, has an undisclosed location, kept secret to protect it from damage.

There are seemingly endless options to enjoy these vertical monstrosities but two of the most popular hikes are Lady Bird Johnson Grove and Fern Canyon.

Lady Bird Johnson Grove is an enchanting patch of Redwoods at a higher than usual altitude, causing fog to mystically float through the dense green vegetation. Fern Canyon feels pre-historic, and not coincidentally, was a filming location for Jurassic Park 2.
