Shorty after our gondola ride at Mystery of the Trees we decided to take a scenic ride through Jedediah State Park along the Howland Hill Road beginning in Crescent City.
The road was written up in a guide we had that it was one-way traffic. We soon found out… not so much. Not to worry, there were plenty of pull-overs and such to play hopscotch with SUVs and Subaru’s.
Howland Hill Rd. was a jewel! Off the beaten path, the dirt road (well maintained and very smooth) threaded through the giant redwoods towering above us. The scale of tin boxes to nature’s giants is something you have to experience in person. I’d heard stories of the grandeur, but nothing compares to pointing your 2,000 pound toy between one massive trunk and the other, just a few feet away. – Dan
