    Hikers can take the Montgomery Woods Trail, a two-mile loop that takes hikers under 300-foot tall giant redwood groves.

The weather can be changeable in northern California, a temperate zone with somewhat warm and fog-laden summers (50's-80's F) and cooler, damper winter conditions (30's-50's F); layered clothing is recommended.
