Trail shared by Zander Göpfert

Duck into the redwood forest off Howland Hill Road on this trail that winds around Mill Creek.

Zander Göpfert

Features River/Creek · Wildlife

Family Friendly A short and flat jaunt to Mill Creek with easy access off Howland Hill Road.

Description

This moderate trail features exemplary scenes of primeval redwood forest while illustrating how the plant life changes as you get closer to Mill Creek. The relationship between the forest and creek is clear, and in a number of spots you can see where big redwoods have fallen over and now contribute to habitats for young fish in the creek.
