Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park is a state park located along U.S. Route 199 approximately 9 miles east of Crescent City, California, United States. The park consists of 9,500-acres, including redwoods and accessibility to the Smith River. The park is named after explorer Jedediah Smith and is one of three state parks cooperatively managed as part of Redwood National and State Parks.
The park consists of 9,500 acres of redwood trees, including several groves of old growth trees. One of the groves, totaling 5,000 acres, includes the World
's largest (not tallest) coast redwoods, which measures 20 feet in diameter and 340 feet tall.
The Smith River, which flows through the park, has Rainbow
trout. Black bear is found in the park, along with black-tailed deer, squirrels, chipmunk, raccoons and other mammals.
The Smith River also flows through, which is the last major river in California that does not have a dam. Within the park, the river is rather undisturbed and holds the state record for rainbow trout, clocking in at over 27 pounds.
The park consists of 18-miles of hiking trails and over 100 campsites. Mill Creek
flows through the park and merges with the Smith River near the campground. In the warm season, a seasonal bridge is placed across Mill Creek for easier access to Mill Creek Trail and one end of Hiouchi Trail.
