  • Breathtaking Trees | Comfortable Hikes For All | Excellent Campground Hendy Woods is a wonderful park for people of all ages and abilities. It' has trails of varying, mostly mild difficulty, and all of the old growth is very accessible and flat. The old growth park is breathtaking. Many fallen giants are left where they fell. You can go inside several of the fire-hollowed trees. Although you should always stay on the path, they park does not feel overly fenced off like some other parks we've visited. There is a river bed that is also fun to explore, if you need a break from the trees. The campgrounds are very nice. Sites are large and among the redwoods, which you can't beat. As it can get very hot here in summer, it's great to have that canopy. Hosts and rangers are friendly too! Bonus: there is an apple orchard next door where you'll want to stop on the way out for tasty juices.
  • Great place to camp or explore for the day. The trails are not restricted to the path so you can get up close with the Giants and explore. Watch out for the poison oak and respect others by keeping your areas clean.
