Explore the Redwoods, the Coast, the Klamath

Adventurers travel from around the world to take in the majesty of the Northern California redwood groves of Yurok Country. From the Redwood Hotel Casino, you’re within easy driving distance of the more than 200 miles of trails that meander along the beaches and through the old-growth forests, forests where some trees approach over 350 feet in height and 2,000 years of age. (For a different perspective of the redwoods, consider a ride on Sky tram gondola at Trees of Mystery.) Redwood National and State Parks are also home to a host of iconic animals, including Roosevelt elk, black bear, bald eagles and California sea lions. (These thick forests are also reputed to be a favorite stomping ground of O-mah, or Bigfoot.) If you want to try your hand at fishing, ocean charters are available from nearby Crescent City; and August through October, you can cast a line for Chinook (King) salmon in the renowned Klamath River.
