This is just a magnificent place to see incredible Redwoods, the tallest tree in the world. The national and state parks work together to administer this area. Be sure to take the Newton B Drury Parkway to see the greatest trees.

There were lots of dogs from what we saw. Smith River had lots of people swimming with dogs as well. Might play it safe and call the visitors center or BLM and ask if there are trails where dogs are not permitted.
