We traveled through the Giant Redwoods near Oregon last year and decided to visit Montgomery State Reserve to walk the trail. Guess we should have read additional information as NO DOGS are allowed on the trails and we brought our Certified Therapy Dog (not a working dog) all the way up and down the narrow hairpin turns for almost an...

Forget the thousands of visitors at Muir Woods. This beautiful and under-visited stand of redwoods is the go-to-place to view these ancient, majestic living beings in solitude. It is a good hike for families and offers parking and restrooms, but little else in terms of amenities. That's a good thing in my book. Bring a camera, too, because there many... More

Couple of mile hike, fairly flat, very doable with family, and you get to see some of the tallest tree in the world. This hike boasts 3rd highest tree in the world.

Montgomery Woods is hidden along a narrow, windy back road (Orr Springs) and up a short but steep trail. Therefore, not many visit. The beautiful hanging valley where this tree, thought to be the tallest living thing in the world from 2000 until taller specimens were found in 2006, this tree, and its grove of near equals, is a treasure....

Felt great while I was in the midst of these ancient redwood giants today. It was so cool, tranquil, and shady. This place is highly recommended for people who appreciate nature or trees. As you go in deeper, the redwood gets bigger. The really huge one is much further in. You could easily spend an hour or more just walking... More

Between December 1996 and August 2000, the tallest tree in Montgomery Woods, named the Mendocino Tree, was the world's tallest known tree. The tree is over 366 feet tall making it 13 feet shorter than the now tallest tree. We took Mountain View Rd from the south on Hwy 1 and returned on the Compche-Ukiah road. The grove was amazing...

Ah, the redwoods! Nothing is quite as beautiful or tranquil as a grove of redwoods. Because this is not on main roads, few have found this treasure so it remains in a more natural state than most redwood groves. The Mendocino tree is located in Montgomery Woods but not identified in order to protect its identity. The park is located... More
