The Humboldt Redwoods State Park features challenging mountain biking trails in a gorgeous setting.
The trails in Humboldt Redwoods State Park are dominated by steep and technical climbing with tricky descents. More impressive, however, is that Humboldt Redwoods State Park protects almost 51,000 acres of terrain with 17,000 acres of old growth coastal Redwood forest and the largest undisturbed stand of old growth coastal Redwoods in the world.
The trails of Humboldt Redwoods State Park travel through groves of giant trees, the forest floors carpeted with a mix of ferns and moss, on their way up Grasshopper Peak.
A map of the Humboldt Redwoods State Park can be picked up at the visitor center on site.
