Travel Tips

The road from Redway to Shelter Cove is only about 20 miles or so, but it is a winding country drive which passes through the Kings Range Mountains, and many miles of beautiful forest. You will want to give yourself plenty of time to make this drive during the daylight, especially during rainy or foggy weather. Always watch for deer and other wildlife.
