Park Information

Monte Rio Redwoods Regional Park and Open Space Preserve is near the West County communities Monte Rio, Camp Meeker, Tyrone and Occidental. With several miles of trails winding through redwood and Douglas fir forests, the 515-acre park is a destination for hiking, mountain biking and picnicking.

The park currently has no restrooms or drinking fountain, though restrooms are planned as part of the park's development. The nearest public restroom is at Creekside Park in Monte Rio.

Trails

Most of Monte Rio Redwood’s trails are open to pedestrians and cyclists, though Dutch Bill Creek Trail and portions of Monte Rio Redwoods Trail are pedestrian-only.

The .2-mile Dutch Bill Creek Trail is unpaved with gentle grades and passes through a redwood grove along the creek – a cool, shady place to rest on a hot day.

Another popular partial-loop route is to start at the parking area and combine the Monte Rio Redwoods Trail and the River Mountain Trail for a 2.4-mile hike with about 835 feet of elevation gain. Hiker Haven provides a pleasant knoll where you can stop to catch your breath.

Accessibility

The park has no accessible features, though they are planned as part of the park's development.
