Wine Country Hidden Wines and Hikes – Mendocino County

If you are traveling between the Anderson Valley and the Hopland wine country, this is a sweet hike for wine lovers who love the outdoor life.

Hiking in Montgomery Woods State Natural Reserve

For a secret and hidden getaway for hiking and wine fun, try Mendocino’s Hopland to Ukiah area.  The featured hike is a two-mile loop hike in Montgomery Woods State Natural Reserve.  On Highway 101 the town of Hopland is the center for small and family-owned wineries. See the Hopland Wine Trail for details.  This activity is an excellent way to combine hiking and wine tasting on a day-long getaway. There are plenty of spots to lodge in the town of Ukiah, and just a few in Hopland. The same goes for restaurant choices. To get to Montgomery Woods State Nature Reserve take Orr Springs Road in Ukiah for 13 miles. The road is twisty and in parts narrow. At the Reserve, there is parking, picnic tables, and restrooms.  The picnic tables are at the entrance and a few within the first portion of the loop trail.
