Humboldt County

Be prepared to spend as much time looking up as ahead on Humboldt County holidays. That's because you'll find the largest number of giant coastal redwood trees on the planet in this part of northern California, including some of the tallest trees in the world. Although the view is spectacular whichever way you look. Alongside a spectacular coastline, charming Victorian towns and mind-blowing wildlife, the scenery makes for an unforgettable mix.

Wandering among 350 ft-tall giant redwoods in the cool of the forest is a must on Humboldt County holidays. There's a clutch of places like Redwood National Park and Humboldt Redwoods State Park where you can follow the trails through the trees, stopping off at a river beach to cool off along the way. But if walking isn't your thing you can drive the suitably named 33-mile Avenue of the Giants along the Eel River instead, passing right through a living redwood en route.

Once you've done the forests, you should hit the ocean for some spectacular stretches of Pacific coastline. Up around Trinidad you can fly a kite on the wide shore at Clam Beach or hit the surf at beautiful Moonstone Beach. Agate Beach is a favourite with beachcombers hunting for treasure, while the protected and spectacular Lost Coast has 100 miles of pristine beachfront perfect for coastal hiking. If it's isolation, craggy sea cliffs, adventure surfing and stunning wildlife you're after, head there.

Don't forget Humboldt Country's delightful little towns, though. It's easy to fall under the spell of Victorian seaport Eureka as you wander among its shops, cafés, seafood restaurants and galleries. And among Ferndale's beautifully preserved Victorian buildings and quaint Main Street storefronts you'll feel like you've stepped back in time. Town, country or coast - Humboldt County has it all.

Tall Trees

All of Humboldt County's redwoods are pretty spectacular, but some stand out more than others. Giant Tree stands 354 ft. tall but has an equally impressive girth and crown, and is a colossal beauty. Corkscrew Tree has four intertwined trunks. The Dyerville Giant lies prone on the ground with its roots spread out like dreadlocks. And rare Albino Redwoods are actually white.

BigFoot

Legendary Bigfoot is said to roam the forests around Willow Creek. It was here that the 1967 footage, said to be Bigfoot was filmed, and there are still regular sightings of the hairy creature reported. You can visit the Bigfoot Museum to peruse pictures, reports and casts made from supposed footprints, or go off in search of the man-beast yourself!

Fern Canyon

So dramatic is this narrow 80-ft. deep canyon in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park that it featured as a backdrop for the movie Lost World: Jurassic Park II. The towering walls of the canyon are draped with all manner of ferns, moss and foliage, making for a verdant wonderland and a truly stunning sight. You can hike the trail alongside the stream that snakes along the canyon floor.

Wonderful Wildlife

There's the chance to get up close and personal with all manner of wildlife on Humboldt County holidays. The ocean is alive with seals, sea lions, porpoises and migrating whales. Bald eagles, ospreys, peregrine falcons and countless migratory birds soar overhead. Plus there's black bears, river otters, coyotes and even wandering elk.

Local History

It doesn't have to be all about the Great Outdoors in Humboldt County. There are some great museums you can visit too. Check out the Clarke Museum in Eureka or the Hoopa Tribal Museum to find out about the area's Native American heritage; or Fort Humboldt Historical Park for local military and pioneer history.
