  • Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, [1]. Located on the south end of Felton on Highway 9. Long scenic trails filled with old growth redwoods, a nature center, and biking trails make this a great park to visit.
  • Roaring Camp Railroads[2] Located right next to Henry Cowell Redwoods. Take a train ride to the beach or a steam train into the redwoods.
  • Big Basin Redwoods State Park, [3] Located about 30 minutes north of Felton. Go north on hw9 and take hwy 236 at boulder creek. Contains a vistor's center, many deep trails along old growth redwoods, camp areas, and access to great scenic views. Longest trails lead towards the coast, which takes an all day commitment but very worthwhile.

  • Taqueria Vallerta , [5]. Great Taqueria in the area, good prices.
  • ChopStix, [6]. Small but relaxed Chinese style restaurant. Many good items on their menu, slightly pricey but very well worth it
  • Redwood Pizzeria, [7]. Great pizza, made fresh and in many variety right at the location. Price is good, the wait may be quite long but that's because they put quality into what they make.
