We stopped at this pretty and easy to navigate coastal redwood forest on our way through Sonoma and Napa. There were no more parking spots near the visitors' center, so we parked on the street. The area is well marked - informative signs about the history of the park, information about a few historic trees, a cross section of a... More

We were steered to this park by our hotel in Windsor, as we were on our way to Cazadero and the Berkeley Music Camp. We had time to use up, and what a lovely place in which to do that. The redwoods are, of course, gorgeous and majestic -- the park is very quiet, peaceful, and deeply soothing. I can't... More

We hiked several of the shorter trails. Trails were well marked. The redwoods are amazing. Many examples of trees that have survived forest fires.

We take a picnic lunch and spend the day. We love that there are trails for all fitness levels. You get to explore the redwoods and learn about them at the same time.

We headed to Armstrong Redwoods for a Sunday outing. Parking just outside the park is free, or $8.00 to drive in. ($7.00 for seniors). It's about 3/4 of a mile From the main kiosk to the picnic area, which also has a large parking area. It is an easy walk, and has a few areas marked with some historical facts.... More

Majestic and serene, and well worth the trip north of San Francisco. The ranger was so helpful! There were no crowds and the ride back along the Pacific Coast Highway was breathtaking.

To be among the redwoods (at least one of them estimnaed to be 1,400 years old) is like being in a beautiful cathedral. My sister and I camped at Bullfrog Pond Campground in the adjoining Austin Creek State Recreation Area above the redwoods. We had redwoods in our campsite! Our first night there were only 2-3 other sites occupied. There... More

Lovely place for a stroll with well laid out trails among the trees. We got there quite early and so it was peaceful - but when we were leaving it was clear that it does get busier and less peaceful.

Beautiful Redwood forest for walking or driving.We chose the drive since my legs and heart weren't up to the hike. the col Armstrong tree was gigantic and even had its own parking lot where you could park and walk for an up close view of this wonder.Would recommend it for driving,hiking and picnicking.

These redwoods are not the biggest of the redwoods but they always bring a feeling of Awe to us mortals with a short life span. These ancient trees have seen much history---- Indians and explorers.
