Armstrong Grove State Preserve The Pioneer Trail in Armstrong Grove is an excellent example of a typical Old Growth Redwood Forest. This grove was one of the last examples of this type of forest in Sonoma County and set aside in the 1870s by the far sighted lumberman who both cut and appreciated these trees for what they were. This walk is a self guided interpretive walk in old growth redwoods with outstanding examples of plant life within an old growth grove. Much of this trail appears to be ADA compliant and a segment of this route has been designed for sight impaired visitors. There is a guide rope along one side of the (Discovery) trail leading to a series of Braille Information placards.

Compared to other redwood parks (Montgomery Woods, Humboldt Redwoods, Redwoods NP) it was okay. I did go when it was sunny and I think redwoods are best in the rain.

Easy for families, dogs, or an afternoon stroll. If you have family visiting, this is a great place to show outsiders what the Redwoods look like. Beautiful in the sun and in the rain! Entry fee for cars, walk ins are free.

Did this short hike in the pouring rain. Gorgeous scenery. Park outside the gate and walk in, save yourself a few bucks.

Great quick look at some tall Redwoods. Would recommend as it is very accessible and quick. Best when not crowded (Morning or Evening)

This looks like a great family trail. I enjoyed the perspective of looking up at the trees in the photos. It really helped give a sense of how majestic this forest is.
