Description

Head to the heart of the Coast Range and step into the majesty of Montgomery Woods State Natural Reserve. You’ll find a world rich in solitude, silence, and remarkable groves of coast redwoods. A 367.5-foot redwood at Montgomery Woods was once thought to be the tallest tree in the world. Taller trees have since been found in Humboldt Redwoods State Park and Redwoods National Park, but Montgomery Woods is still noted for its lofty giants. A two-mile-long loop trail leads, steeply at first, on a rewarding tour. A nine-acre donation by Robert Orr in 1945 started the reserve, which has been enlarged to 2,743 acres by purchases and donations from Save the Redwoods League.

The reserve is open for day use only—no camping allowed.

Accessibility Description

The restroom, interpretive panels, and shaded picnic tables at the park entrance are accessible. The beginning of the natural reserve’s unpaved trail may be too steep for many wheelchair users.
