Where to See California Redwoods near Olema House

The redwood forests are a can’t-miss part of any Northern California vacation. The ancient giants are some of the biggest trees in the world, and standing beneath their branches is an awe-inspiring experience. There are many different places to visit, with three incredible options near Olema House. These parks are less crowded than those found further north, and they’re conveniently close to all the fun things to do in the San Francisco area.

Muir Woods National Monument

Muir Woods Park is perhaps the most well-known California redwoods forest on this list. It’s about 45 minutes from Olema House, but the drive is a worthwhile experience in itself. You’ll drive along the world-famous Shoreline Highway—a must on any Golden State vacation. Plus, this other-worldly park is on the way to the Golden Gate Bridge, so you can see all of Northern California’s most cherished sights during your Muir Woods day trip.

California Redwoods at Joaquin Miller Park

You can find even more California redwoods just across the bay from Muir Woods Park at Joaquin Miller Park. Drive over the bridge, grab lunch in San Francisco, and continue to the wonderful town of Oakland, where you’ll find the only urban colony of California redwoods! The giant redwoods in California’s Joaquin Miller Park are crazy-tall, and some of them grow in unique, swooping formations.

Samuel P. Taylor State Park

The California redwood coast spans for many miles, so if you’re willing to drive a few hours, you can see more than a handful of parks with these beautiful trees. However, one of the most gorgeous places to see California redwoods is just five minutes from the comfort of your Olema House room. Samuel P. Taylor State Park is literally down the road from our boutique hotel. It has some incredible hiking trails under the shade of California redwoods.
