The sequoia trees here are impressive. There are several short hikes which provide easy walks, and interpretive signs explaining not only the redwoods, but also history, animals, etc. Check out the visitors centrum as well. It is small, but really interesting. Drive into the park...More

Ample parking in the lot on the Tuesday afternoon we were there. Just a short walk to the well marked trails that guide you through a beautiful "cathedral" of nature. It was so peaceful and serene with wonderful smells of pine in the air. We...More

I could have spent all day here! Absolutely amazing. Quiet, calm, beautiful. The trees are stunning. And to think of how old they are.

Beautiful redwoods, no huge crowds, good parking, and nice trails. We were able to have a wonderful picnic while enjoying the beauty of nature with these magnificent trees.

Really lovely walk through the redwoods. There is a clear well manicured, well marked short trail. Its cooler temperatures was refreshing. There is a nature center on sight for more information.

We drove through Muir Woods on our way from San Francisco to Napa hoping to see the big trees. It was a waste of time. You need to make reservations to park and we didn't see anything as we drove by. The drive from Napa...More

We chose to visit this grove of coastal redwoods, over the more convenient but crowded Muir Woods near San Fran. We were very glad for our choice! In a word, these trees are majestic. Nice walking paths around the grove, a picnic area, and friendly...More

The well maintained trails were easy for a family with small children. A quick, level stroll leads you to trees over 300 feet tall! Much less crowded than Muir woods, but the trees were just as impressive. The tallest tree in Muir is 'only' 258...More

Hi Angie, Guernville is about a 30 minute drive from Santa Rosa. I don’t know if there is any public transportation. It may be essiest and cheapest to rent a car for the day. You could probably get an Uber but that might... More

There isn't any public transportation from the airport to the park -- Uber or Lyft will cost you ~ $30 (one-way), so you'd probably be best served by renting a car -- even if only for the day. The airport is situated in... More
