Hendy Woods State Park features two virgin redwood groves; Big Hendy with a self-guided discovery trail and Little Hendy. The Navarro River runs the length of the park.
Located in the middle of the Anderson Valley wine district, this park is warmer and less foggy than most redwood parks along the coast. The park is well known for a fallen redwood stump that was home for a man known locally as the Hendy Woods Hermit.
Camping, hiking and day use offer an opportunity to relax and enjoy this special place. Fishing is not permitted.
Trails—Big Hendy Trail is a level, 1.6-mile trail. The Little Hendy Trail is a short loop through the grove. The Hermit Hut Trail takes you where the “Hendy Hermit,” a Russian immigrant, once lived alone among the trees. The Azalea Creek Trail is a gentle walk through the trees, and the Eagle Trail is a service trail between the day-use area and the campground.
Camping—The campgrounds sit between Big Hendy and Little Hendy groves. Azalea Campground has 43 sites and Wildcat Campground has 49 sites; each site has a table, barbecue stove and food locker. Piped drinking water and restrooms with hot showers are nearby. Four small cabins and a hike-and-bike camp offer variety.
Picnicking—Near the banks of the Navarro River, 12 picnic sites with barbecue stoves and tables overlook the Big Hendy Grove.
