Significance: The significance of the Redwood Highway is not simply that of a picturesque thoroughfare, although in the 1920s, parts of it, like the Avenue of the Giants, were identified as exceptional motoring experiences. Its evolution and the early preservation of the landscape is the essence of a rising U.S. conservation movement, at the core of which was the Save-the-Redwoods League, whose work resulted in a string of state parks connected to the road. In contrast to the mission of park preservationists and philanthropists, local and regional interest also marked the highway from the 1920s onward as a premier tourist destination and advocated for its interests.
