The town of Leggett reflects the logging history of the region. The area is home to some of the largest trees in the world, which you can see at Standish-Hickey Recreation Area and at Smithe Redwoods State Natural Reserve with its 60-foot waterfall, picnic area, and fishing and swimming in the south fork of the Eel River. Leggett is where you can leave Highway 101 to intersect Highway 1 and follow the winding highway to the coast. Stop in at Drive-Thru Tree Park to drive through the Chandelier Drive-Thru Tree. Standing 315 tall and 21 feet wide, the 2,400-year-old drive-thru tree is a definite show stopper. Just a few miles north in Piercy, Confusion Hill in Piercy features a gravity-defying house, Redwood Shoe house, mountain train ride, and the world’s largest standing chainsaw sculpture.
