"One of the greatest days of my life!"

Way better than what I had expected. I paid $115.00 for a full day & the experience that I had received; I would for sure pay a couple hundred dollars more & for the rating stars above, I would definitely recommend a billion stars more. REDWOOD RIDES! Thank you so much for assisting the ultimate adventure of a lifetime & for helping me to build a memory that will last forever in mind. I'll definitely be coming back again!

"Such a perfect family day!"

Our family trip down the Smith river in August was AMAZING!!! Adam and Alex were wonderful! We had a full day of kayaking, it was quiet and peaceful and oh so beautiful! We stopped twice to jump off the cliffs, once on a rocky beach to have a snack and go for a quick swim and also for a great beach-side lunch. The day was simply perfect; kayaking through the majestic redwoods and having SO much privacy!

"Friendly, spectacular experience"

We heard about Redwood Rides from the Visitors' Center at Jedediah Smith State Park. Adam was great on the phone making the arrangements. Alex was professional and very personable from our pick up at the entrance to the park to our pick up just past the day use area. We were well informed and were provided with great equipment. We will definitely be doing this trip again at Redwood Rides!

"The best part of our road trip"

Our day with Redwood Rides was by far our favorite adventure! They provide all the equipment needed to bike and kayak through the Smith Woods and River. An unforgettable experience in some of the most beautiful landscape I've ever seen. The water is clean and refreshing and the trees are nearly unbelievable in size. Cannot recommend Redwood Rides enough as the best way to experience this area!

"An unforgettable experience"

Redwood Rides is the place for adventure gear in the northern redwoods. We used their mountain bikes through Jed Smith park..a great way to see the forest. We also took a ride down the Smith River, guided by Adam. Amazing river, crystal clear. Even though water was low, Adam knew just where to go and how to approach each rapid. We always felt safe and it was a blast! Thanks Adam!

"The best father-son time!"

My 12 year old son and I just spent an awesome afternoon on the Smith River in kayaks provided by Redwood Rides! Adam and Alex got us set up with the inflatable kayaks and at the end (3 hours?) I called Adam and he came to pick us up. He was great to work with and really knowledgable about the area. I recommend Adam and Alex and Redwood Rides if you're looking for a fun way to see the area!
