Hiking in the Redwoods
Armstrong Woods State Reserve is a 805-acre park featuring a magnificent grove of ancient redwoods, a large outdoor amphitheater, self-guided nature trails, and a variety of picnic facilities. This reserve is the only grove of old-growth redwoods open to the public in Sonoma County.
The self-guided Armstrong Nature Trail is an easy walk through the grove. Printed guides for the nature trail are available at the visitor center or park office. More challenging hikes such as the East Ridge Trail are also available.
As you stroll through this beautiful old-growth redwood forest, you'll see some of the tallest and oldest trees remaining in this part of California. The Parson Jones Tree is about 310 feet high; the Colonel Armstrong Tree is more than 1,400 years old. 17000 Armstrong Woods Road, Guerneville, CA
