Between 1996 and 2000, the “Mendocino Tree” was thought to be the tallest tree in the world, but that crown was toppled when a number of taller trees were discovered in Humboldt County. The Mendocino Tree still grows in the old-growth redwood groves in Montgomery Woods, but its precise location is kept secret! Enjoy a walk along the boardwalks in the 1,300+ acre park – boardwalks protect the fragile forest floor from damage – and marvel at the giant, living beings. In springtime, Montgomery Creek runs through the park, and wild iris and trillium bloom along the banks.
