Took my dog here for a walk recently; though we couldn't walk on the trails, we could walk on the paved roads, and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the woods. A beautiful place, we're lucky to have nearby (to where I live)...and we'll be back more often for sure. As we had rains, the creeks were flowing well. And... More

This is one of the best places in the Russian River area to visit. When i have people visit me (I live in the area) I take them here and it is always a hit. I prefer to go on weekdays when there are fewer people. Most people just go into the redwood forest, which of course is a great... More

Lovely trails, easy walks, picnic areas and clean bathrooms. Definitely favorite spot. Arrive early when the weather is nice to ensure a parking space. Dogs on leash are also welcomed here!

If you want to get up close to a Redwood this is a very good place to do it. Miles of hiking trails among some of the most beautiful forest ever. And it's all free if you walk it. Park outside the gate and save yourself the fee - there is plenty to be seen within just the first few... More

Peace and quiet. The quietness is amazing. Its truly a unique experience. We parked by thethe ranger station and walked the trail. We did the "Discovery Trail". Along the way you have markings and information. The mushrooms were coming up all over the place. These majestic trees are a sight to be seen and forever remembered. Pictures do not do... More

You can hike and/or walk around the lower area where the Redwoods are. Amazing! Nice hiking. Bring your camera.

We were in the area enjoying are our trip and decided to come with family and friends to visit the forest.

We took plenty of pics and read all the... More
