The Place

Nisene Marks is a beautiful park with 40 + miles of hiking trails. The canopys of redwoods is a favorite to all.
The park offers rugged semi-wilderness, rising from sea level to steep coastal mountains of more than 2,600 feet. Once the site of logging operations until the 1920s, visitors can still find evidence of logging operations, mill sites and trestles in the park. The land was donated to the state by the Marks family in 1963.
