21600 Big Basin Way # 406, Boulder Creek, CA - Map
Alex L's rating:
An easy drive from Santa Cruz, San Jose or San Francisco is this 18,000 acre redwoods state park. I lived in Humboldt County for seven years, and it still astounds me how impressive these southern redwoods are. Plus, the park has campsites, a snack bar, junior ranger activities, and an amphitheater with performances. Even the drive there is beautiful.
