Virtual Guidebook to the Redwood National and State Parks
Klamath and Requa
Del Norte County California


The Klamath River, largest on California's north coast and famous for steelhead and salmon fishing, reaches the ocean west of the small town of Klamath.

The Trees of Mystery is a roadside tourist attraction impossible to miss. The highway bridge and the town of Klamath were both wiped out by the flood of 1964, but rebuilt (mostly) on higher ground. A road leads west from 101 through the hamlet of Requa to a high viewpoint above the mouth of the Klamath.
