These redwood trees are the best. So tall and peaceful and old. Gorgeous groves of trees. Well maintained paths. Truly a pleasure and privilege to be there. Many paths are wheelchair accessible. Helpful friendly volunteers. Go if you can.

Stunning little walk in the morning. Took us about an hour and then we were ready to leave. There was not a fee, which was a nice surprise. The help desk was very helpful.

We spent a couple of hours in the reserve. The Redwoods are awesome. It's not crowded like Muir, that's the reason we chose to go here. Parking is hit or miss but you can park down the road a bit and walk in. We enjoyed our afternoon here. The only down side is the restroom, not clean.

Please make sure to visit this reserve. This is awesome. It's only about 20 to 30 minutes north of most vineyards and winery's and it's free if you take the walking tour. Two dollars if you drive. But to see a 1400 year old living tree, 14 feet in diameter is well worth the drive.

I enjoy hiking & meditating in Armstrong Woods, it is beautiful with steep or level ground trails to accommodate everyone's needs. It is beautiful & the Armstrong Woods Church in the Woods is a beautiful place for a wedding ceremony, I have been planning on having my wedding ceremony in Armstrong Woods.

Loved our hike in the redwoods. We chose a hike that looked "rigorous" 2.2 miles East Ridge Trail, and I wasn't feeling well so that probably wasn't the best choice, but as we went along, the trail forked twice and we were not sure we were taking the correct way. It was well maintained and beautiful, but quite steep, and... More

Wonderful opportunity to hike for hours close in to the Russian River. Magnificent. Be careful that you don't get lost. It's much larger than you will realize, and it's cold under these big trees, so take jackets.
