A few days before going to Armstrong Woods, we had gone to Muir Woods outside of San Francisco. Our entire group (2 teens, 2 adults, and a senior) all agreed that Armstrong was much better. More majestic and definitely less crowded. You could not only...More

This being wine country I suppose that we shouldn't be surprised this place was quite busy during the late morning of a summer Friday. Lots of folks parked free along the last mile approach to the visitor center. That free lot was full. Of all...More

If you're visiting this area we highly recommend visiting this Redwood Reserve. It's very beautiful and clean - well maintained. We went during the week and it wasn't too crowded. A wide variety of trails for hikers of every level.

We spent a relaxing morning walking through fantastic redwood groves. Hiking trails range from flat and easy to hilly and challenging. Going to come back when the streams are full. Just a beautiful place to enjoy nature and take photos.

How can you visit California and not see the redwoods? A lovely walk in the forest, amazing trees and great photo opportunities-and its all free of charge! This is well worth an hour or so meandering the trails.

We stopped here after a tour of the Korbel winery. The price was $7 per car. The redwoods were wonderful! Not having the time on this vacation to go to the large redwood forest further north, these redwoods were very large.

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

Only if you were headed South on the 101 from North of Santa Rosa, otherwise it would be at least an hour away.

I did not see any RV parking specifically marked but if you get there early enough, the lot is big enough. You can hike from there to all there is to see. Better yet, park in Guerneville and uber or bike to the park. Then... More
