Explore the Woodlands

The Mendocino Woodlands has eight hiking and biking trails offer over 25 miles of forested routes through the park and adjoining Jackson State Demonstration Forest. The Big Tree and Old Jeep trails lead hikers to the one remaining old-growth redwood in the area—the Big Tree, scarred by lightning and sculpted by fire.

This park is operated by the nonprofit Mendocino Woodlands Camp Association, who runs a seasonal outdoor science school. Please ride responsibly. Be prepared to encounter large groups of children and hikers on the trial.

Camping at Mendocino Woodlands is by group reservation only. All bathroom facilities are the private domain of the rental groups and are not available for day use visitors.

Please Remember:

·      Except for service animals, no pets are allowed in the park.

·      All natural and cultural features are protected by state law and may not be disturbed or removed.

·      Swim in the river and pond at your own risk. No lifeguards on duty.
