The park doesn't take long to drive through. But, there are lots of hiking trails. We took food and ate in a large picnic area. This is a beautiful place. But, many people feel the same way and we found it to be lacking solitude.

We had no idea the forest was there when we arrived in Guerneville - so glad we were told to go there, lovely place to walk, so tranquil and unusually warm for a forest. The theatre was amazing, I would love to ha e watched a play there. A must place to visit.

Stumbled on this small stand of Redwood tree's in a quiet, rustically preserved park. We drove in later in the day - wish we would have had more time to walk around. It's just a small experience of these majestic trees I've always wanted to see! $7 and just outside of town - don't skip this. We were on the... More

Free to walk in and only 7 dollars to drive, this forest of towering redwood trees takes your breath away. Hiking trails for even the most timid walkers (guilty) take you past behemoth trees that have been standing for a thousand years or more. Enjoy a bit of nature while in this area.

When in the Russian River area, a visit to the reserve is an absolute must. Colonel Armstrong and his family managed to save a lot of the original growth. The walking paths are easy and well marked. The redwood trees are "magic." Oh such tranquility!

This was a great stop to see the redwoods on our way from wine country to Bodega Bay along the beautiful Russian River valley. You can park at the entrance parking lot and walk into the reserve for free, or pay a modest $8 fee to drive into the park. We barely scratched the surface of the trails available in... More

Wasn't crowded and impressive stand of trees, the trails are very good. Spending a few hours here is a great way to hike a few miles and see a lot of big redwoods. Saw five deer. $7 senior car, $8 regular admission

We started the day with a hike through the redwoods. Beautiful park right in wine country. The woman working in the visitor's center is very knowledgable and helpful. The hike she suggested was perfect.
