Montgomery Woods is a beautiful and free location where you can get in touch with your nature side. You will find yourself surrounded with Giant Sequoias (Redwood). Take a camera and pack a lunch. There are plenty of places in the City of Ukiah where you can stop and eat. You don't need a cooler, just make sure you stop... More

This place is worth to visit, free of charge as well. We went to there on a rainy morning, the trail was muddy and wet but we experienced such a great feeling. The road from Ukiah is narrow and hilly, drive careful but the views are nice. After this place, you can continue onto Medocino, another place need to visit.

The Drive-in tree is a good attraction for the people visiting Ukiah. No tourist misses to take a few photos with the vehicle they travel inside the bottom of the tree. The natural environment provided by the Redwood trees is very great.

We visited on a Monday, with a light mist in the air. The parking lot is small, only 7 cars but we were the only ones. We had the grove to ourselves. The trees are huge. At one time they thought the tallest in the world was there but now that honor goes to another tree. But these are so... More

You must walk in almost a mile to view the largest tree. Do not miss it rain or shine. It might be the tallest I do not remember.

Just a short drive west from Ukiah, California. Montgomery Woods is a place I have been going to for most of my life. A wonderful rejuvenating experience. You will be awestruck by the size of the trees as well as vegetation here! Make sure to take water and something to eat as you will want to stay for several hours.... More

We took several trails to see the trees. It is hard to believe how big around they are. This is a MUST see if you are in the area.

Montgomery Woods is a rare old growth redwood forest with some of the tallest trees in the world. Its about twenty minutes west of Ukiah over the rim of the Ukiah Valley. Parking is limited, but adequate. I have never run into a crowd. Once you make it up the first hill you are in an enchanted setting with plenty... More

Take snacks, you will NOT want to leave. the trees are magnificent. Take a short walk down any trail to lose sight of the road, and sit down...Renew your spirit here.

I love the redwoods & have visited many, many groves. Add to it, my wife & I accidentally took this road almost 35 years ago, before it was even paved. The road is in better condition west of the Reserve than east, but both are slow and often very narrow. But now paved. Previous reviewers have lamented the conditions of... More
