So beautiful! Like Muir Woods without thousands of tourists. We had this trail all to ourselves. We are coming back tomorrow to hike it again.

Very nice trail with a few different routes for a nice option. There's a nice picnic area at the start of the walk. It certainly doesn't hurt that it is very close to the Anderson Valley Brewery for a nice beer after the hike.

Camped overnight at Hendy Woods SP. Nice small park with a good sample of Redwoods. Camped in the Azalea Loop. Campsites were nice though the adjacent showers were a little out-of-date. Tip: Go to the newer showers at the loop entrance - very nice and appear recently renovated. Walked both the Big and Little Hendy groves. Both were nice trails and I have a feeling fewer people visit the Little Hendy. I actually thought Little Hendy was quite nice and provided a bit more solitude away from other campers.

Nice easy walking trails in a great location nearby to wineries and an amazing apple farm. You can do a variety of distances which is kind of nice. Cool hermit hut to see (the one further out was better). Beautiful redwoods, very peaceful. There was also a great picnic spot with clean restrooms nearby. My only complaint was the confusing map. Would love to camp there next time.

Easy hike through the majestic Redwoods. Follow the road til it ends, park and follow the trails to the Big Hendy Grove. First Discovery trail then Upper or Back Loop. So much quieter and more peaceful than Muir Woods.
