Hidden Park Gems, Valentine's Redwoods Gifts
In the deep folds of the Santa Cruz Mountains, you'll find the largest stand of ancient redwoods south of San Francisco at Big Basin Redwoods State Park, the perfect place for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, picnicking and more.
HIGHLIGHTS: A visit to the Eel River's magnificent redwoods inspired John C. Merriam, Madison Grant, and Henry Fairfield Osborn to establish Save the Redwoods League in 1918. Only three years later, the fledging organization won protection for the area.
