Beautiful place, kind of hidden so not as busy as some of the other redwood forests. Not the largest redwoods you'll see but the park is lovely.

What's not to like about being active in the Redwoods? You could spend all day here or hike one of the shorter trails to see the beauty this magic place holds.

Who needs Muir woods with this so close. Only had a short time to visit, but it is a must. Very easy hiking, or just strolling.

I drove in on a very rainy, misty afternoon, which gave the forest a very mystical quality. The atmosphere and setting are absolutely amazing. My tiny Mazda could make it all the way to the end, so don't worry about that.

We stayed in Healdsburg but wanted to see some redwoods, so I found this on tripadvisor and decided to give it a visit. It is about 35 minutes away, so not a bad drive. When you get in, you can pay to drive in ($8) or park at the lot and walk in. We decided to pay and followed the... More

I am so grateful to Colonel Armstrong for saving this grove of sequioas. The two oldest redwoods are approximately 1300 and 1400 years old, over 300 feet high, and over 14 feet in diameter. The drive from Santa Rosa is great. A two lane road with quaint little towns. The access road brings you to a quiet and peaceful corner.... More

Beautiful park and a fantastic opportunity to view the majestic redwoods while in the Sonoma area. As others have indicated, park in the lot, get a trail map and enjoy the various hiking trails. You can't get here without going through Guerneville, so be sure to leave some time to explore this interesting, and somewhat quirky, town. It's great.

I drove in and took the single lane road up to the top of the hill. Car tires slipped a few times. But, it was worth the drive. So peaceful.

This "park" is out of the way for most of the Sonoma vineyard visitors, but is well worth the side trip. There is a visitor's fee if you drive past the main parking area but there is no need to drive farther for the privilege of walking among these giants. The silence is truly golden only half a mile or... More
