We spent a very enjoyable two hours walking the Upper Loop trail amongst the wonderful redwooods. The trail was extremely serene, and presumably because the park is a way away from any large population centers, we only encountered one other walker. The trail is fairly flat and easy to navigate in comfortable walking shoes - climbing over a small log... More

Wonderful stately old growth redwood trees. We were there Saturday afternoon on a sunny day. There were 3 cars in the day use parking area on arrival, and 6 when we left the main attraction of the redwood grove 2 hours later. The hike was easy, well marked and beautiful. Tall, tall trees, fern covered forest floor, occasional fallen tree.... More

Reserved site #39 for our 27 foot trailer; however, the trailer pad was extremely unlevel due to large tree roots. Would not recommend the site for any size trailer due the direction of entry and overall condition of the parking pad. Luckily the camp host Bernie was very helpful and let us know the park has "emergency" sites. Thankfully, we... More

We love Hendy Woods! One day we hiked north from the picnic area to Little Hendy Grove. A few days we hiked south to Big Hendy grove. Both hikes are lovely. The shade brings welcome relief from summer heat. The Hermit's huts are very moving. I am glad that this Russian immigrant's history is captured so well. The hikes up... More

Sitting on a bench in the middle of Hendy Woods was the most relaxing hours spent on the entire trip to the Left Coast.

This is a beautiful park great for camping or day use. The walks through the lofty redwoods are awe-inspiring.

Every trail was beautiful, from the Hermit huts to the Discovery trail. We loved the redwoods the best! Their incredible height and variety! It was so quiet and there was a respectful silence around the giant trees! There are occasional benches dotted around, camping available and a nice picnic area for day users. Wonderful area!

I spent a few hours hiking in the park with my young son and we had a lot of fun. To help keep my son engaged and entertained during our hike, I found an interesting iPhone app called "Git Your Goat." It lets you create a lot of goats along the trail and when you reach the spot with a... More

The camping site 14 was spacious and level and fairly near the restroom. We could have easly put 2 tents in addition to our 30' RV in the site. The space was partially shaded, not as much as some of the other sites, but enough to keep cool. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. I walked the trails that... More

I visited Hendy Woods for hiking. The park is located about 1/2 mile south of 128. The trails are not very long but they do go through some small groves of large redwoods. The trails were relatively flat so almost anyone can walk though the groves. During the week the ranger station was not open so there was self registration.... More
