California Hotel Reservations
Kruse Rhododendron State Reserve
What began as the Kruse Family Ranch in 1880 has blossomed into the Kruse Rhododendron State Reserve. Located west of Healdsburg, this state reserve today features five miles of hiking trails through the 317 acres of second-growth redwood, grand fir and Douglas fir forests and clusters of rhododendrons. During May, hikers enjoy the brilliant pink rhododendron blossoms.
The Department of Parks and Recreation maintain the reserve to ensure the regenerating forest is not overwhelming the rhododendrons. While visiting the reserve, schedule time to visit the adjacent Salt Point State Park. Enjoy your time in the beautiful North Coast region of California.
