|An Ancient Hidden Tree
Off the beaten path lies the most amazing
tree at the Russian River. The type you walk around a few times to have a real
good look at. When you arrive, notice the quiet of the redwood grove, cool refreshing
air, the sweet scents, the softness of the forest floor, the occasional inquiring
animal. Touch the huge living thing in front of you and gaze up its trunk to the
forest canopy above.
Getting there: Look at the area map and make your
way to Armstrong Redwoods Road from central Guerneville. Park at the entrance
and walk in along Armstrong Nature Trail. After starting on the trail you will
cross the road twice then take the first left.
