  • Armstrong Redwoods is currently closed due to wildfire damage.

    Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve (SNR) preserves 805 acres of majestic Coast Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens). Coast Redwoods are classified as temperate rainforests and they need wet and mild climates to survive. Armstrong Redwoods is a natural sanctuary, cherished for its remarkable features and revered by those seeking quiet reflection. It is a living monument to the magnificent primeval redwood forest that covered much of this area before logging operations began during the 19th century.

    The redwood ecosystem is very fragile. Every effort is being made to preserve and protect the Coastal Redwoods in the Reserve, but it can only be done with your help. When you visit, please do not disturb or remove any natural features of the park, stay on designated trails and do not cross low-level fence lines.

    The reserve includes a visitor center, large outdoor amphitheater, self-guided nature trails, and a variety of picnic facilities. There are 9.2 miles of hiking trails in the reserve. While you can drive into the park, the best way to experience the dramatic effect of the towering redwoods is to park in the lot at the park entrance and walk in for free. All of the park features are a short easy stroll along level trails that are disability accessible. Please note that dogs are not allowed on any of the footpaths or hiking trails—they must be kept to paved roads only. Open daily 8 a.m. to one hour after official sunset.

      Beautiful hike and bike through the redwoods!! I wish there were a bit more bike trails, but we still had a good time! Park on the road to avoid park fees.
