The Roads of the Jedediah Smith Redwood SP
One of the coolest thing about the Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park is the roads that wind and weave through it.  From Highway 199, to two laned paved roads, to dirt roads surrounded by redwoods, this forest has the small roads your film needs. 
With over 18 miles of hiking trails and 100 campsites scattered all over the Jedediah Smith Redwood SP, this is the perfect place to film your next camping movie.

From the Commissioner, 

Every month we look around Humboldt and Del Norte County and bring to your attention hidden gems, places that you would only know about if you lived here.  This month we're taking a different approach.  Known around the world as one of the largest redwood forests, Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park is truly a place unlike any other.

Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park
Located in Del Norte County, nine miles east of Crescent City on Highway 199, Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park is astounding.  This park, along with Prairie Creek, Del Norte Coast, and the National Park Service's Redwood National Park, are managed cooperatively by the National Park Service and the California Department of Parks and Recreation. These parks make up 45 percent of all the old-growth redwood forest remaining in California. 
Jedediah Smith Redwood SP is 10,430 acres.  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 redwood.  Of course the park has other things than just redwoods.  Conifers other than redwoods include western hemlock, Sitka spruce, grand and Douglas fir, as well as the less common Port Orford cedar. Primary examples of the understory include tanoak, madrone, red alder, big leaf and vine maple, and California bay. Ground cover is dense with a wide range of species and varieties of shrubs, bushes, flowers, ferns, mosses and lichens common to the coast redwood environment.  The park consists of 18 miles of hiking trails and over 100 campsites.  Not only that but the Smith River, the last major undammed river in California, and the Mill Creek run right through the park.  The park also comes with a film pedigree, many films over the years have been shot here, none bigger that Star War: Return of the Jedi (1983).
