This is a beautiful redwood forest with great hiking trails and a WPA theatre. However Californians do not know how to enjoy a trip to the woods. Park was pretty crowded on a Sunday and adults were loud while their kids were a complete undisciplined mess. I'm not complaining about one group--the description fits 60 percent of the families/groups we... More

I had not heard about this park but my husband looked at a map when we were in Sonoma wine tasting and suggested we stop by. It is a special, quiet place to see some of the most beautiful redwoods on earth. We went on a week day (recommended) and really had the chance to take our time and enjoy... More

Armstrong Redwood Park is such a beautiful park to stroll through. I live five miles from it, so whenever I want to have a peaceful stroll I go there. If you park on the outside of it, you can walk in for free and stay as long as you want. If you want to drive through, there is a small... More

Nice area to read about the history of the area and about the trees. It is amazing how tall the trees get and how long they live. A nice area to walk through to see the different redwood trees.

This place is incredible. Much better than Muir Woods. Quiet. Great hiking trails in the redwood forest and when you finish go up the hill to Austin Creek Recreation Area. Unbelievable views, great trails and not too many people. If you want to see Northern California nature this is the place

This State Reserve is beautiful for hiking and enjoying the majestic redwoods. There is a learning center near the parking lot with a touch table for the little ones and some souvenirs if wanted.

We were in Sonoma for wine tasting, but happy to have a short morning hike in the redwoods. It blew us away. If you haven't seen redwoods, you definitely should, they are truly awesome. The park is terrific, with well-maintained trails and informative plaques along the way.

The walk among the giant Redwoods is a great way to spend a few hours. The trail is mostly flat and well taken care of and there are different loops you can chose from depending on how long a walk you want to take. Bring a picnic lunch and dine under the enormous giants. Great place for kids.
