I have read all of the reviews and agree with each one. I'm not a hiker so I was glad that the paths were fairly flat so I was fine with that! Just sorry we did not think to bring a picnic lunch. It was so pretty and peaceful. No, there isn't any solitude but, afterall, this is California. I... More

You'll find many paths through the redwood forest, from wheelchair accessible to made-for-nimble-goats. Many people drive in to the picnic area, but there are other options: Park at the Visitor Center just before the gate -- no fee, there's a gift shop with informative displays / staff, and you can walk through the trees about a mile to the picnic...

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.
