Seeing the Redwoods was on my bucket list so finally being given the chance to go was so exciting. This place was amazing. It's an easy hike and is full of amazing views everywhere you look. The Redwoods were beautiful and so majestic.

We originally planned to visit Muir woods during a northern California trip, but while we were in wine country, we figured we'd stop in this reserve, too. We nearly had the place to ourselves on a cool, sunny March morning. Several other families walked through...More

Beautiful groves of old growth redwoods. Safe, wheelchair accessible and easy hiking. We also took the East Ridge trail, higher elevations, above the redwoods but very pleasant. Perfect way to spend a few hours with friends and family. Great for children.

Breathtaking scenery. We took a very challenging hike surrounded by redwoods, and all kinds of plants and birds. Great way to spend your day.

Okay hike with a 1000 foot elevation. Was hoping for some wild flowers but saw barely any. Fairly easy to follow the route

When I found out about this reserve from TripAdvisor, the reviewer said "Like Muir Woods without the crowds." That's true. I second his/her opinion. This reserve is not simple. You drive in, and you are a bottomland populated by huge Coast Redwoods. If you are...More

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
