Hendy Woods State Park Campgrounds Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"In a parallel universe, there would be no Hendy Woods State Park Campgrounds. In 2011, when 70 California state parks were on the chopping block, Hendy Woods was scheduled for closure in 2012. At that time, the park spent approximately $200,000 more each year on operating costs than it brought in. Less than 50,000 people visited the 816-acre park, making it a little too quiet for legislators trying to balance budgets. Fortunately, something about the silent, ancient coast redwoods defies price tags.

While the trees, some 300 feet tall and more than 1,000 years old, certainly take center stage, there’s more to do than just wander the woods. Picnicking along the 3.3 miles of river frontage in the park is popular. This gentle section also lends itself to floaters, so bring your own craft and take out at the Philo-Greenwood bridge."
