General Information

The Navarro River running through Hendy Woods SP
Copyright: California State Parks
The Navarro River running through Hendy Woods SP
Description - Hendy Woods State Park features two virgin redwood groves; Big Hendy (80 acres, with a self-guided discovery trail) and Little Hendy (20 acres.) The Navarro River runs the length of the park. Located in the middle of the Anderson Valley wine district, the 845-acre park is warmer and less foggy than 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.

Two campgrounds have become base camps for travelers visiting the Wine Country.

Recreation - Fishing has not been allowed in the park for several decades. Fishing is permitted in the Navarro River watershed down river from the bridge at the park entrance. In the summer, swimming is popular as is kayaking and canoeing in late winter and early spring. A wheelchair accessible nature trail leads into the heart of Big Hendy grove. The park also features exhibits, Junior Ranger nature walks, and campfire programs.

Climate - Summers are generally mild. Fog is often encountered near the coastline, with sunny, warmer weather more common inland in the foothills. Winters are generally cool with considerable precipitation. Wear layers of clothing to accommodate cool to warm temperatures and good walking shoes. Rain protection should be included at any time of year.

Location - The park is eight miles northwest of Boonville, a half-mile south of Highway 128 on Philo-Greenwood Road.
