Description:
Montgomery Woods is a park reserve of currently 2743 acres in the heart of the Coast Range. Accessible from a small parking lot where it leads up a moderately steep 3/4 mile trail and into magnificent coastal groves of old redwood trees with streams and a lush beautiful fern forest. A two mile trail weaves into a loop around the grove with wooden walkways in places. A popular destination for visitors seeking a remote and tranquil atmosphere.

Site Condition:
Good. In 2008, a lightning strike resulted in the low-intensity Orr Complex wildfire which scorched the perimeter of the park. The old groves have been left untouched with much of the perimeter regenerated. A few trees near the grove are observed having scorched bark.

General Notes:
The reserve is located 15 miles east of the small town of Comptche and 13 miles west from Ukiah, past Orr's Mineral Hot Springs resort. updated 5.17.2010 pk, 6.30.2015 ca / 9.18.2015 / 10.20.2015 lb/ 5.22.2018 kl
