View into the forest

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 150 years ago, 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.
