Redwood in Winter

Summer is probably the best time to visit the Badlands, with warm weather and star-lit nights. We recommend early summer (June) to beat the crowds and the heat.

Winter Overview

Redwood in winter can be surprisingly nice with the temperate climate keeping the lows in mid 40s and the highs in the mid 50s. Crowd sizes are minimal this time of year which makes for a more intimate experience in the park. One can find themselves complete solace in many of the parks groves in winter. One thing to note is that this is the rainiest time of year in the park which brings its own charm as the true vivaciousness of the forest comes to life.

Winter Activities in Redwood National Park

Winter in Redwood National Park is often quite nice. Temperatures are cool and sometimes cold but with lows bottoming out in the mid 40s it’s never too bad. Winter is a great time to escape to Redwood which experiences far more mild temperatures than much of the country due to it’s temperate climate. Popular Winter activities in the Redwood include:

  • Finding solitude on the park’s many hiking trails.
  • Driving through the park’s scenic drives to soak in the beauty of the forests and ocean air.
  • Wildlife watching. The park’s resident elk population can be enjoyed year round.
  • Experience the forest in the rain. The redwoods take on an entirely new feel during a rain with beautiful sites and sounds.
