Hike through the LandPaths Grove of Old Trees

Grove of Old Trees - Search Nearby - Added by Tucker Cullen

A small yet tranquil grove of old growth redwood trees just outside of Occidental, CA.

The Grove of Old trees is a privately-owned preserve in Western Sonoma County that is open to the public year round. It is not large, only about 33 acres, but it makes a wonderful spot to go on a walk and to soak in the beauty of the redwoods.

To get there from downtown Occidental, drive West up Coleman Valley Road towards the coast until it turns into Joy Road. Continue on Joy Road for about 0.2 miles, then make a right on Fitzpatrick Lane. Continue up this narrow, windy road for about 1.4 miles until you arrive at the small parking lot for the Grove. There will be a sign for the Grove on your right prior to reaching this parking lot.

Access to the Grove, including parking, is completely free and open every day of the year.

The Grove features a few short loop trails totaling about one mile. These paths take you by a few incredibly tall old growth redwoods and a few picnic tables that make perfect spots for lunch. It is relatively flat and a few of the trails are suitable for strollers or wheelchairs.

If you are looking for a bite to eat afterwards, the popular Union Hotel in Occidental offers delicious family style Italian dinners. There are also other good restaurant options in Occidental as well as in nearby Bodega Bay.

A Place I Will Now Reliever Forever

Very beautiful and peaceful trail through the forest with a few benches along the way. I spent all day driving my girlfriend around the area trying to find the right place to propose but everywhere I had in mind was packed with people. I found this on the app and an hour later I was engaged. It was perfect, we were there for an hour and a half and only saw two other people who took our photo in front of the big hallow tree. It's a place I will now remember for the rest of my life.
