GROVE OF OLD TREES
Set in the gorgeous rolling ranchland of Sonoma County, a few miles west of the attractive tourist town of Occidental, is the Grove of Old Trees, a small redwood grove owned by a Sonoma County land conservancy. The grove is on a broad, flat ridgetop that provides a quiet and serene location, with only an occasional car passing by on the single-lane residential road.
A small network of trails, perhaps coincidentally in the shape of a peace sign, extends through and around the grove. There are no signs, but the trails are well-defined and easy to follow. There’s a picnic table at the west end of the grove, but no other facilities. More information.
