Hendy Woods is, like some others of the coastal redwoods parks, a compelling place to visit. It's on the way from/to San Fransisco, so plan on a 2-3 hour visit. It's not a heavily visited area - at least not in spring. The trees and their forest are gorgeous old growth, moist, dark, quiet, and quite beautiful. I would choose... More

If you have been to Muir Woods to see redwood trees and had a hard time getting close or a picture without other tourists running into your view, then this is the park to go. On a sunny mid-fall day we met three other couples while we walked through the big grove for almost two hours.The signs for the trails... More

Excellent place to camp near Navarro. The hiking through the redwoods is exceptional. Restroom/shower facilities need upgrading, but, all-in-all a beautiful spot to spend a few days. Big RV's beware: Tight curves and some small sites could be a problem.

Redwoodhikes.com lists Hendy Woods as a 5 star hike for seeing redwoods. They were right! It takes a while to get there, with a very curved road to get there, but it's worth it. The park is not well marked as to where to go to see the Big Hendy trail, but it isn't too hard to find. The hike... More

Pros: Beautiful place; cool at night, mid-80s during the day; no highway noise; a flat place to pitch your tent; a river for wading; close to wineries and a brewery; very good family restaurants nearby; few mosquitos. Cons: Older bathrooms: cockroaches, floors filthy, showers slimy; unreliable hot water from older showers, shower heads missing so the water shoots out like... More

If you're in this part of the state, the walk through this redwood grove is beautiful. Not very crowded (and we were there on a Saturday morning), especially if you walk the upper trail, which we had to ourselves, and where lots of the big trees are. And it's not a really long walk, even if you include the upper... More

We spent almost three hours here tooling around the various trails. The Hermit Huts are a quirky find. Hoping to go back and stay in a cabin.

Great trail through the old grove redwoods that is an easy stroll for all. Nice beach along the Navarro River also and a nice campground with big spaces.
