1. I’m looking for a peaceful and quiet little nook in the redwoods…for sitting and reading and spending a few quiet hours. I often go to Samuel P Taylor, in Marin, but would love to find a spot closer to EastBay/here…any ideas? Did you see any little, appealing groves in Redwood?…maybe in the little town of Canyon?


    1. A Nature Mom says:

      Our favorite one in the East Bay is Redwood Regional Park in the Oakland Hills. There are lots of picnic tables and benches throughout the park. I also enjoy the groves at Roberts Regional Park, also in the Oakland Hills. I’ve found a few hidden little redwood groves in a few other locations… UC Berkeley Botanic Gardens and Blake Gardens both have small groves. The San Francisco Botanic Garden also has a grove. Further away, but perhaps closer than Samuel P. Taylor, the Santa Cruz mountains have some great redwood groves, too. I love Big Basin. I love redwoods!


      1. thanks so much for all the suggestions!
