This map covers all of Humboldt Redwoods State Park as well as three small neighboring parks: John B. Dewitt Redwoods State Natural Reserve, Benbow Lake State Recreation Area, and Richardson Grove State Park. A 1:500,000 scale map of the North Coast is also included.
This is the largest-scale and most detailed map of the park, and is the only printed trail map of the park available to the public other than the official trail map and the park brochure. All official hiking trails were drawn from newly-acquired GPS data with a resolution of about 250 feet. Trail mileages are marked and most streets that have names are labeled. To help you keep track of your location, the map shows the locations of memorial grove markers, footbridges, panoramic viewpoints, and stairs. A UTM grid is provided to help with GPS navigation.
Unofficial trails and dirt roads are shown and are greyed out to distinguish them from official hiking trails. I don't recommend that you use these trails, but if you accidently wander onto one, having it on the map will help you get back on track.
This is the only commercially-available map of the park to show which areas have old-growth redwoods (see the dark green areas in the sample maps above and below) — an important feature since most of the park's longer trails actually pass through second-growth forest.
