We came across this while going to Korbel and boy did we luck out. Great trees, a short walk to see some huge ones and secluded. My friend said way more here than muir woods as well. Free to walk around or a few bucks to drive through. Worth a stop if your in the area and the local town... More

We did not have nearly enough time to fully enjoy this lovely place. We really liked the fact that is was not nearly as crowded as Muir Woods but equally as majestic.

If you have never been to a redwood forest you will be amazed at how dense the forest is, and how large the older trees are. 310' high is the largest, 308' high is the oldest (1400 yrs old). It is shady, cool on the forest floor. These trails are flat and paved for easy walking. Range from an easy... More

We arrived after the visitors center had closed, but the grounds were still open, so we walked around and really enjoyed it. This was a very easy "hike" - not strenuous at all. We came on a Thursday, late afternoon, so not crowded at all. Spent about an hour here, which was just about the right amount of time for... More

By far one of the better state parks I have been too..the redwoods are absolutely amazing. The best part about this place is that it has something for everyone -- whether an experienced hiker or a family just looking to take the kids (and the dog) on a stroll. Yes -- the park is kid and dog friendly. The park... More

We had a great time at the Armstrong Redwoods. It was very easy to get to and manageable with small children. There are a range of trails available so it's well suited from serious trail running to casual walking with little kids. $8 well spent, don't miss it.

Mostly flat Redwood Walk Bike or Skate with no stairs unless you decide to hike up mountain to Bullfrog Pond. Better to drive up but take it easy on the very narrow road with shear drop offs

This is actually two parks together. We had limited time and only wanted to see the Redwoods. In order to do that, stay at the bottom of the park, walking distance to the south end entrance or so. There are a few parking areas there, one before you enter the park, which if a spot is available, it's free; or... More

I bring all visitors here to see the gorgeous trees that used to cover the area. I never tire of walking in the woods. I have been here over two dozen times.

You can stroll among the giant redwoods on the forest floor where it will be 15 degrees cooler in the summer months and have a nice BBQ as well. You can go on long hikes up to bullfrog pond from the parking lot or drive halfway or most of the way for amazing vistas over the trees. It seems like... More
