My husband and I visited here while we were in Sonoma County. The Redwoods were just amazing to look at- They are so enormous and they seem to go in forever. Some of the trees are as old as 1300 years. There are trails after...More

Lovely redwoods! Easy to get to with lots of hiking or strolling options. We drove up the windy narrow road to the Bullfrog Pond lookout. Excellent views!

We went here one beautiful morning and did not have to stop in Muir Woods because of it. Muir is bigger and better mind you but Armstrong was calm and tranquil with some big trees and a quiet forest floor...

We noted that Muir Woods had just imposed a new parking protocol to limit the number of visitors. So based on a friend's recommendation, we decided to visit the Armstrong Redwoods instead. What a great choice! The redwoods and physical environment were spectacular - 300...More

This awesome attraction is just outside the funky town of Gurneville, CA. The trees are majestic, and unlike other redwood groves this one is not as crowded. Bring a picnic and mosquito spray, sit back and enjoy being among 1400 year old trees.

A special place to hike and appreciate the majestic beauty of a Redwood forest, dog friendly with easy parking and modern restrooms.

We did a longer hike and ended up on the shorter loop through the redwoods. The shorter loop would have been just fine. So amazing. Great history about the trees and it's preservation.

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

Alas, dogs are not allowed on any of the reserve's trails. I'd say the answer has to be no.
