Guerneville Things to Do: 16 reviews and 30 photos
Our venture into wine country included more than tastings, we wanted to see the giant Redwoods located a few miles from Guerneville. We discovered a peaceful, sun-dappled woods, punctuated by the tallest trees on earth--as high as 350 feet!
The Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve was set aside as a 'natural park and botanical garden' by Colonel James Armstrong in the 1880's. Although he harvested lumber for his livelihood, he appreciated the beauty and value of those forests in which he worked.
The park has preserved 805 acres, which contains a visitor center, 2,000 seat outdoor amphitheatre, self-guided nature trails, picnic tables and restrooms.
FYI: There is no camping at the state reserve.
Address: Armstrong Woods Road, Guerneville, CA
Directions: West on River Road from highway 101, approximately two miles north of Santa Rose. Drive to Guerneville; at second traffic signal in Guerneville, turn north (right) onto Armstrong Road, which deadends at the park.
