Overview

Features: River/Creek — Wildlife
Dogs: No Dogs

Runner Notes

A short and flat connector that can be used with other neighboring trails for a great loop with easy parking access.

Description

Access this trail at the marked trailhead off Howland Hill Road, across from Little Bald Hills Trail parking and trailhead.

Head northwest along the Smith River, which is the last major undammed river in California. In the summer months, these pristine waters flow next to an old-growth redwood forest, while being home to a thriving school of chinook salmon and steelhead trout.

Flora & Fauna

California bay, tanoak, Douglas-fir, Pacific madrone, and salal, huckleberry, and thimbleberry. Look for trout and salmon in the deeper corners and eddies of the river.
