HRSP can be accessed from Highway 101 or the scenic Avenue of the Giants (Highway 254). I think the most interesting feature is the glorious Eel River. There are tons of places to access it within the park, and the swimming holes are amazing.
I was at Humboldt Redwoods this year for a site visit to Founders Grove. I instantly remembered it from my childhood, and it all came rushing back. It was pretty cool to see it again in person and reflect. When I was young I had no idea about the League and its involvement in creating the park. Even when I was in college and learned about the League I didn’t put the pieces together. It’s pretty cool that I spent so much time as a kid in a place that was created by the organization I now work for! I have really come full circle.
