From FernGrove, it is an enjoyable stroll to the river; taking less than ten minutes to reach and enjoy the beautiful Russian River as it flows past Wine Country vineyards and redwood covered hillsides. Spend a leisurely day canoeing down the river towards Guerneville. Stop and sunbathe along the many sandy beaches. Experience spectacular sightings of ospreys, blue herons and egrets. Canoe rental makes it easy. All the equipment is available and a courtesy shuttle returns you to your car.
