    Save The Redwoods League should work with county, state, federal agencies to build a “HIGH SPEED” train from Southern California to Northern California, to increase visitation. Also, consider having some camping sites and maybe a “LUXURY HOTEL” like Yosemites Awahnee. Showers should be available. Atleast, have electric shuttle bus vehicle transportation available from adjacents State & National Redwoods Parks to Westfall Ranch and Headwaters Forest Reserve. I live in Simi Valley and it is ridiculous for me and friends to consider driving up to the Norhern Redwoods for a few days.
