Protecting Old-Growth Forests at Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park

What started as 157-acres of old-growth redwoods in 1925 has expanded into what is today a 31,000-acre State Park. Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park hosts a stretch of the California Coastal Trail that provides a vital access to this remote area, with eight miles of the trail that traverse sea-side bluffs above these ancient old-growth redwoods.
