Where are we going today?

Big Basin Redwoods State Park stretches from sea level to over 2000ft above and terrain ranges from almost tropical canyons and raging waterfalls to sparse and almost arid slopes. There's certainly scope for some terrific exploration here, with natural wildlife and mini beasts in abundance.

You really need to stop at park headquarters for guidance before anything else, especially if you're planning on doing a hike or bike trail with kids: there are over 80 miles worth to choose from and as indicated even parallel routes can vary tremendously.

There are equestrian trails as well as the hike and bike, plus a smattering of camping oportunities.
