Nisene Marks State Park

The Place

The forest of Nisene Marks offers thick second-growth redwoods, creeks with awesome riparian zones and geological wonders. It was once the site of logging operations until the 1920s, park visitors can still find evidence of these operations at the mills sites and trestles in the park. The park is dark and can be damp and cool with an abundance and wide variety of vegetation.
