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. "You could be looking at a tree, genetically, that is from the time of the dinosaurs," enthuses Brett Silver of the California State Parks. It's just one breathtaking element of this state park's redwood grove that, according to Silver, "is almost like you're in a different world."
