Day Trips, San Francisco: 51 reviews and 103 photos

Armstrong Redwood Grove State Park
Go visit the California Redwoods that served as the dramatic backdrop to the Star Wars movie The Empire Strikes Back (the planet the Ewoks lived on). This park is a beautiful place for renting horses, walking or hiking, or camping. The views are dramatic! This is my favorite place to take friends and family who aren't from California. This is a great family trip.
