This little park is terrific. I grew up roaming the forest with my cousins. My uncle was a Park Ranger there in the 50's. This place is majestic.

We hiked the East ridge and throughout the park. The redwoods are amazing and we say deer grazing with their young. A great park.

The redwoods are simply magnificent. We visited on a nice spring day and I enjoyed walking the trails through the lovely forest. I found it peaceful and quiet, well worth the drive from Sebastopol.

Easy drive if you are in Russian River area. Easy hiking and magnificent redwoods! This is a state park and no admission if you walk among the trees.

The most amazing woods I've seen. All trees are special, but these old redwoods are perhaps the best trees on our planet. On the negative side, Mr Armstrong made a fortune cutting down almost all the redwoods in the area before he decided to preserve these trees. But I am grateful to him for saving this woods for us to... More

Was advised by our hotel staff that this was THE place we had to go to while in the area. Picked up a sandwich at Duncans Mill and headed for the park. There is a useful little visitor information office to visit at the park entrance. $8 entrance fee to take your car up to the picnic area but you... More

So easy to achieve zen amongst giant trees. The park is well managed and maintained, but the trees are amazing.

A must see for redwood tree forest. You can drive your car through or you can take an easy hike on foot. Magical, quiet and amazing!

We would highly recommend a visit and are thankful for Carol at St Francis directing us this way. We originally planned on stopping at Muir Woods, which was crazy packed on a Thursday morning at 10 am. I'm glad we skipped it and found this place. It was a little out of our way, but the peacefulness and beauty of... More

We opted to visit Armstrong rather than Muir woods in the hopes of avoiding some of the summer crowds. It was a good choice. You'll get to see some pretty large trees here but you won't ever get to experience them without someone nipping at your heals. That said, it's much less crowded than Muir Woods. If you stick to...
