One of the major attractions to Humboldt County is the breathtaking amount of gorgeous Redwoods stretching as far as the eye can see. The entire 500-mile Redwood belt in Northern California consists of over 500,000 acres of these giant trees. In late 2006, the world’s tallest tree was discovered inside the Redwoods National Park in Humboldt County. It was named Hyperion and is 379.1 feet tall, six stories taller than the Statue of Liberty. These trees are enormous and truly awe-inspiring in a way that must be seen to believe.
The redwood forest includes 31 miles of its largest trees in the world-renown Avenue of the Giants which has been included in the book, “1,000 Places To See Before You Die.” The historically beautiful Town of Scotia is located near the northern gateway to the avenue’s entrance. Of course, you are not going to spend your whole time in Scotia looking at trees. Fortunately, there is no end to the sightseeing possibilities here in Humboldt County.
