Beautiful hike and bike through the redwoods!! I wish there were a bit more bike trails, but we still had a good time! Park on the road to avoid park fees.

The Adventure Buddies had a great time exploring the Armstrong Redwood State Reserve. We visited Colonel Armstrong a tree over 1400 years old and Parsons 1300 years old! Explored the forest learning about the roots, the moss, animals, so incredibly beautiful we all enjoyed it very much taking lots of memorable videos and photos! Easy hike for all ages!

Muir Woods, just north of San Francisco, is beautiful, but Armstrong Redwoods blows it out of the water! The sheer density of huge redwoods and beautiful forest makes this spot a can't-miss if you're at all near the area. There are a bunch of moderate-to-difficult hikes with some decent elevation changes. There are some long, but mostly flat and fairly easy hikes. There are some accessible hikes that are short, flat, and still go by some of the biggest trees in the grove. And there is even a paved road that goes quite far into the reserve and has multiple turnouts and parking lots that are right among the trees.

I live in Santa Rosa, about 30 minutes from Armstrong, and during this time of shelter in place, this is my GO TO place to get some fresh air. It's not a huge park, and, fortunately, many people don't know about its beauty, so, except for weekends and holidays, it is seldom crowded. Just sitting amongst these gentle giants, many of which are over 300' tall, is an experience in serenity. The redwood grove is easily accessible, with well maintained trails, most of which are wheelchair accessible. I recently had knee replacement surgery, and I have no problem on my walks. Dogs are permitted on the paved portions. If you come after it starts raining in the winter, there is a nice waterfall on Fife Creek which is a relatively easy hike. There are also fungi and wildflowers. Just closing my eyes, I can smell the FRESH AIR THERE! The visitor center is closed right now, but if you go after it opens, it's small, but information packed. The staff in the park are great and will answer ALL your questions; just ask at the entrance kiosk. (Locals tip: If you like Mexican food, the taco truck in front of Safeway downtown is well worth a stop. Just about every time I go to the park, which is weekly, I get lunch at the truck.)

Beautiful park, dogs allowed on paved trails, great place to walk in the shade on a hot day and perfect for social distancing.
