A personal introduction to the majestic redwood trees and wine country.
Be at peace as you wander among the Redwood Trees in Armstrong State Natural Reserve. Stand and enjoy the tranquility of the surroundings and marvel at the majestic redwood trees.
The Parson Jones Tree stands over 310 feet (93m) tall and the Colonel Armstrong tree is over 1400 years old.
You will have time to hike and get close to nature and the most majestic of trees. It is very relaxing and a zen like experience. After a gentle hike through the woods we go to a winery to taste some of California's finest wines and have a bite to eat before heading back to our drop off location . . the charming seaside town of Sausalito. From here you can take the ferry (30 minutes) back across the bay to San Francisco. Ranked the 2nd best ferry ride in the world by the Society of American Travel Writers.
The trees at the Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve are taller & older than those in Muir Woods.
