Fall Creek

Photo non-disclaimer, these are from Fall Creek. JTR your web servant in grateful service.

The Place



Fall Creek is in the Northern area of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. It consists of 2,390 acres, with 20 miles of hiking trails and a redwood forest in recovery. The property was clear cut to stoke the lime kilns, that operated on the property for more than 80 years. Fall Creek is an amazing redwood forest environment, especially when you realize there wasn't a stick standing 80 years ago. If the forest can recover, so can we. We'll be doing the short trek to the lime kilns and back for a change of pace from the longer steeper hikes that we've been doing.
