Avenue of the Giants 100 K


RIDE DESCRIPTION: This route is 62 miles with 3300 feet of climbing. After leaving Ferndale, you will cross flat open farmland for about 10 miles before reaching wooded hills on the way to the small towns of Rio Dell and Scotia. Here there are still signs of the timber industry which once flourished in Humboldt County. Continuing south along the course of the Eel River, you’ll enter the tall trees of Humboldt Redwoods State Park. For no additional fee, you can supersize your ride by adding on a few bonus miles after the turnaround point — pass under Hwy 101 and continue west for up to 5 miles to enjoy the most amazing redwoods in Humboldt County! (Link to ride with bonus miles is at the bottom of this page.)
