California’s giant redwoods are a treasure — beautiful and amazing in so many ways. We can be grateful to the historic Semper Virens Club for their determination and vision in preserving the coastal redwoods in this area of Santa Cruz County… and in the process providing a basis for the state park system in California.
Huell has a great time at Big Basin State Park in this episode of California’s Golden Parks. I don’t know if I’d be up for tent camping at this point in my life, but staying in one of the park’s tent cabins in September or October sounds awesome!
Established in 1902, it’s actually California’s oldest State Park. Home to the largest continuous stand of Coast Redwoods south of San Francisco, as well as numerous waterfalls, abundant wildlife, and incredible scenery – this is a trip you will not want to miss.
