I was recently in San Jose, California for a couple days and made the drive a little over an hour southwest to Big Basin Redwoods State Park, the oldest state park in California. There are several hiking trails and a couple are closed due to storm damage. I explored the Redwoods Loop Trail, which is only a half mile trail, but this was not about hiking for distance, but more to me about spending time with these awe-inspiring gentle giants.
I think seeing the Redwoods is probably on every persons wish list and I suggest if you ever get the chance, you should definitely do so! I’m so glad I made the decision to make my way to Big Basin, I will be back to explore other trails
