The Avenue of the Giants is a 2-lane scenic roadway parallel to Route 101. The road cuts through an old growth coastal redwood & giant sequoia forest. The route from north to south, measured from where Route 254 intersections Route 101, is just over 50km/31.5mi. The route is run nearly 90% on road and 10% on the strip of dirt parallel to the roadway. The route is gorgeous, as the road cuts through forests of redwoods & sequoias that are 1000s of years old. There is no shoulder, so care should be taken when running.
