The Avenue of the Giants is a 31 mile scenic drive just off of Highway 101 in Northern California. Along the drive there are a multitude of stops to take pictures, or pull off and access a hiking trail. We happened upon a caravan of classic cars out for a scenic Sunday drive, it made for fun picture opportunities! We hiked the Rockefeller Forest (the .5 mile loop). This was by far one of the highlights of the trip to California.
Notes: Pack a lunch or snack as the dining options along the way are sparse. We happened to stop in Garberville for lunch and I would recommend Flavor Cafe, the baked goods and sandwiches are delish.
