Travel to see Redwood Trees in California

On my personal bucket list is to see giant redwood trees in California over the next couple years. I need some recommendations of where and when to go?

  • Yosemite Redwood's vs. Sequoia National Park - anyone have recommendations or pictures to share?
  • What is the best time of year to visit these parks?
  • Anyone have ideal travel methods? I am thinking of renting a RV or maybe renting a car and staying in a hotel.

Hello, we just drove the Ave of the Giants, we did this in our Class C Motorhome, we have also visited the trees of Mystery near Crescent City Calif. We would recommend seeing both. Enjoy.


When I went through I did it by car and camped in early April. The weather was perfect for camping and sightseeing and it wasn't too busy.

I stayed at Panther Flat Campground which was a beautiful location but looks to be temporarily closed per Google.


On our trip through California we went to Sequoia/Kings Canyon, Yosemite, and Muir Woods. I think they were all great. We went in July, hot, crowded, and low flow in the waterfalls. I think spring would be a great time to see falls. And fall would be great for foliage and hiking.

I flew out to San Diego for a conference, then we took a train up the coast, then rented a car for the rest of the trip. We own a small motorhome, and if we had been closer we definitely would have done the trip by rv.
