Hendy Woods State Park is located on one of the scenic by-ways, the Greenwood Road, in southwestern Mendocino County just off State Highway 128. Although it is less than a three hour drive from the San Francisco Bay Area it is as though in another world. One passes from the hustle and bustle of a modern metropolitan center into a majestic silent primeval forest of Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirons)
After winding over rolling hills and through the Anderson Valley, motorists traveling along Highway 128 suddenly enter an eleven-mile-long redwood tunnel to the sea. The redwood forest along the Navarro River is a magnificent sight.
Visitors to the Navarro River Redwoods State Park can enjoy picnicking, swimming, and camping at the Paul M. Demmick campground. The park is popular with anglers, canoeists, and kayakers in the late winter and spring.
