Experience state parks year round.
Follow a trail upstream along Montgomery Creek and find five separate redwood groves that have never been logged…and picnic beneath the enormous trees.

Montgomery Woods State Reserve -- California's most isolated redwood state park -- is located about 15 miles east of the town of Comptche. It can also be reached by traveling 13 miles west from Ukiah past Orr's Mineral Hot Springs resort. You can access it via a tiny, two-lane, curving road—an adventure itself! Montgomery Woods State Natural Reserve is 14 miles from Hwy. 101 on Orr Springs Rd.
Considering a trip to Montgomery Woods? Imagine yourself there:
This trip is all about the redwoods! The redwoods you will see here, while walking the trail, are among the two main species of redwoods in California: Sequoia giganteum and Sequoia sempervirens.
