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 850-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. In the summer, swimming is popular, as is kayaking and canoeing in late winter and early spring.
