Do yourself a favor and don't come during summer when all the families with kids are running about. You totally lose the peaceful serenity.

Of course, the redwoods are impressive as in all trees are to be revered and preserved. Armstrong is a mostly second growth grove, with a handful of outstanding old-growth specimens. They are well-marked with signs - you can’t miss them.

Smooth, easy to navigate trails. Many trees charred during the fires in 2020, but are still standing tall and proud. Such breathtaking resiliency.

Having been up in Humboldt Country to experience the redwoods there, Armstrong was a disappointment. Humboldt blew my mind open. Armstrong - lovely and peaceful - does not hold a candle to the parks further north.

We've been to the more famous Muir Woods many times. This one is just as good without all the crowds and parking difficulties of Muir Woods. Well marked paths include signs and displays. Do it!

An area of quiet beauty. You pay $10 per car ($9 if 62 or better) to walk amount the redwoods. The pathways are well marked and flat. There are a few information signs and you can pick up,so,e additional information at the visitor center.

Plan on 30-60 minutes.

Such a great way to spend some time. The entrance is only $10 per car and the scenery here is stunning! The redwoods tower 300+ feet and it’s a sight to behold. We arrived later in the day around 6pm and felt like we had the place mostly to ourselves. It’s so peaceful and serene in the reserve. Would love to come back to do a hike.

This is a great place to talk a walk by yourself or with others. I have visited it many times and am always impressed by the beauty, The trails are well maintained and there are good descriptions along the way. There are good photo opportunities set against huge trees. Admission is free unless you park beyond the entrance but there is parking available just outside of the entrance. It is good though to consider giving a small donation to help with maintenance.

This spot can get a bit crowded on the weekend. But, be patient. It seems like the visitors come through in waves. If you take your time to check out the trails, you will frequently find yourself alone on the trails with the always impressive redwoods.

Your captivated once you leave your car. Just start walking. If you want elevation head to the trail next to visitors center. If you want flat, just follow road or Discovery trail a mile or so. Keep going if you want a steep hike. Trail map for loan at entry or visitors center. Lots of great picnic tables. Parking $10, senior $9. No other entry fee. Don’t miss Muir Woods if you have time and parking reservations. However, this park is just as good….almost.
