Did the longer loop trail, which was an easy hike. Not too many people around which only added to the experience. Lovely.

We only walked a short distance about 1 mile round trip to Colonel Armstrong tree and enjoyed the majestic trees on the way.

What more can be said of the majestic redwoods? The Armstrong Redwood State Reserve is a very lovely park.

If you are the active type and want to hike off some vino you consumed, look no further! The beauty of the redwoods is worth the 50 minute drive from Calistoga. My husband and I did the 5.3 mile loop and it took about 2 hours. Go at 8 am, when the park opens, temps are cooler, and crowds are... More

If you don[t mind helping out the State Park system you can drive away from the crowds you'll find searching for parking at the free lot at the base. We spent time on all three trails, saw some amazing things and it didnt' take a lot of time. This is a place for nice short walks and picnicking if that's... More

We always stop in places with redwoods. This is a nice grove that is worth a visit. Take the time to pay homage to these three hundred year old wonders.

We did the East Ridge Trail loop and it was spectacular. A definite quad burner for the 1st half through the upper reaches of the forest...we saw a pileated wood pecker pair feasting on bugs in rotted redwood logs. Then back down into the valley with all the old growth redwoods which never cease to amaze. Highly recommended.

Loved our experience visiting these great trees. Puts you up close and personal and what a treat to be so close and photograph them. We opted to take one of the combined hikes and found ourselves on quite a long and strenuous hike. I researched some of the trails online thinking we would take particular ones, but I don't think...

Well worth the short drive from Guerneville. The trees are not as large as those farther north but are still quite impressive. The paths range from flat and easy to some a little more challenging. A great place to spend the day disconnecting from the world and relaxing in the beautiful forest. Pay the 8 bucks and park in the... More
