Richter Woods Park is a 80 acre park located 1.5 miles west of the city of Montgomery. The park is heavily wooded and reminiscent of the native "big woods" of south central Minnesota. Within the woods, you can find 2.5 miles of self guided hiking or mountain biking trails in the summer months. The park is at its best in the fall months as all of the leaves are changing colors and falling. In the winter months, the park is a popular spot for snowshoeing and cross country skiing (ungroomed trails).
