Big Basin Redwoods State Park , California !!

December 2019 · 3 min read

On my last visit to California i met up with a friend and his wife who are living there and there was one thing apart from other plans we had and that was to visit the Big Basin Redwoods State Park i am a nature lover and these trees i had to see for myself.




Big Basin Redwoods State Park is a state park in the U.S. state of California it's located in Santa Cruz County about 36 km northwest of Santa Cruz and we were about a 2 hour drive from this state park.





On arrival and walking around Big Basin itself was really refreshing and it's really a nice spot to hike around with younger children plenty of small trails and minimal elevation gain but provided a feeling of being much further away from civilization than you really are and really is a great hiking park if you were there for that but we had not planned on doing that just a day out with the friends and kids of course we were all been kids on that day it's something to do with the fresh air.




Big Basin's biggest attraction literally is a rare stand of awe inspiring ancient coast redwoods that are among the tallest and oldest trees on Earth , truly amazing to see you can not image till you feel , touch and hug these trees wonderful old trees really is inspiring.






Some of these old wonderful trees measure more than 92 meter (300 feet ) tall and 16 meters (50 feet) in circumference. Scientists estimate that these trees may range from 1,000 to 2,500 years old just incredible that they are still standing at that age.





Some of these redwood trees in California i believe you can actually drive through them. The best time to visit the Big Basin Redwood National Park is in summer preferably in June or July.





If you prefer to stay a few days in this amazing park there are cabins and tents you can rent out and with 31 great hiking trails, running trails, forest trails and with a area covering more than 18,000 acres from sea level to more than 2,000 feet elevation you certainly will not get bored.
