In Northern California’s renowned wine country, Sonoma County, you’ll find giant redwood trees in places both expected and unexpected — in forests in local and state parks, and along winding back roads or around a bend of the lazy river. These mighty trees can live to be 500 to 2,000 years old, and from 200 to more than 350 feet tall. They thrive in Sonoma County’s mild climate, especially in foggy or moist areas along rivers and streams, and on Sonoma County’s Pacific Ocean coastline.
As you seek out and commune with these amazing trees, which are natural wonders worth honoring and preserving, perhaps you’ll also uncover something new within you. A fresh sense of adventure. A renewed connection to nature. Maybe even a rejuvenated approach to living life.
Here is a suggested road trip itinerary for charting your own course to encounter Sonoma County’s redwood giants, participate in exciting outdoor adventures and sample local wine and food. And best of all, there is lots of fun for the whole family.
