Montgomery Woods State Reserve

15825 Orrsprings Rd Ukiah, CA 95482

The Coastal redwood favors moderate temperature with lots of moisture. They fare especially well in areas of heavy fog, where the soil rarely dries completely. The coastal redwood is the tallest tree on earth, measuring up to 378 feet in height. The Coast Redwood grows best on river flats and stream junctions, where they receive a rich supply of alluvial soil, or silt, deposited there by flood waters.

The reserve started with a nine-acre donation by Robert Orr in 1945, and has been enlarged to 2,743 acres by purchases and donations from the Save the Redwoods League.

The Reserve 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.
Montgomery Woods is one of the more remote of California's 31 redwood parks. It is a perfect place for a picnic, and tables are provided for that purpose.
