Wonderful park. Get there early or struggle with parking. You can walk on flat lands or scale the side of a mountain. Be prepared for a steep climb up to 440 feet before thinking of leveling off. The air in the park is amazing. Dappled...More

We stopped at the Armstrong Redwoods for a peaceful interlude on a wine tasting trip. There was an easily accessible loop with a wide, flat, dirt path that took us through the old growth trees. There are many wineries in the area, so it was...More

Why bother with the crowds and hassle of Muir Woods when you can enjoy an equally beautiful grove of redwoods just a short drive to the north? Arrive early, park your car, and wander the paths through majestic old growth trees. Well designed for strollers...More

Beautiful huge redwoods. Enjoyed the short walk to the amphitheater as well as several other short walks through the redwood forest. Ground is level and easy to walk. Highly recommend.

A great park with easy paths to some amazing tall redwood and Douglas fir trees. Easy jaunt from Santa Rosa or any of the valley wineries. Nice respite in the forest away from the crowds!

Thw reserve is well laid out to walk the trails with easy accessibility. WE spent two hours walking among the redwoods. Not as good as Muir but less people.
