Beginning about four miles south of the town of Scotia is the 32-mile-long scenic road called Avenue of the Giants (named for the redwoods that flank it), which runs parallel to Highway 101: don’t miss the Immortal, a 950-year-old tree that withstood a 1908 logging attempt (you can still see the ax marks).
