A 67-acre old-growth redwood grove is a surprising green getaway in the middle of residential Eureka. It has biking and hiking trails, a children’s playground and picnic areas, creeks and duck pond and a small fun-sized zoo that opened in 1907. The oldest accredited zoo in California houses red pandas, river otters, a barnyard petting area, and a walk-in aviary with exotic birds.
The most popular attraction is the Redwood Sky Walk, an instant hit following its 2021 debut. Soar as high as 100 feet above the forest floor on the elevated trail. While the world’s tallest trees can feel remote in their incomprehensible heights from ground level, the Sky Walk brings humans closer to the mighty trunks for unrivaled views of the forest. The entire quarter mile route is wheelchair-accessible too, save for the “adventure leg,” a narrow segment with open mesh decking that offers oohs and aahs with a back and forth sway. Humboldt residents can take advantage of a modest price discount. Tickets include admission to the Sequoia Park Zoo.
