13 best places to see California redwoods

Found only along the coast from southern Oregon to central California, Sequoia sempervirens, or coast redwoods, don’t run short on superlatives. They’re the tallest living things in the world—rivaling 30-story skyscrapers—and they’re one of the earth’s oldest living organisms, with many trees dating back to the Roman Empire. Yet, today’s old-growth redwoods comprise just five percent of the original stands that were nearly completely lost to logging. Thankfully, you’ll still find numerous places to visit in California where you can marvel at these magnificent trees (and even camp among them!), and explore their enchanting ecosystems of lush ferns, gurgling streams, and vivid yellow banana slugs. Listed in geographic order from north to south, here are 13 places to experience California redwoods—you won't be surprised that many of them are California State Parks.  RECOMMENDED: The best things to do in California
