CA State Parks for the information about park closures:
Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve (SNR) preserves 805 acres of majestic Coast Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens). Coast Redwoods are classified as temperate rainforests and they need wet and mild climates to survive. Armstrong Redwoods is a natural sanctuary, cherished for its remarkable features and revered by those seeking quiet reflection. It is a living monument to the magnificent primeval redwood forest that covered much of this area before logging operations began during the 19th century.
The redwood ecosystem is very fragile. Every effort is being made to preserve and protect the Coastal Redwoods in the Reserve, but it can only be done with your help. When you visit, please do not disturb or remove any natural features of the park, stay on designated trails and do not cross low-level fence lines.
