A manageable grade and views of the Smith River and surrounding forests make this a favorite with all visitors.

Runner Notes

A fairly flat, point-to-point trail along the Smith River.

Description

Access this trail from the trailhead before the west end of the Hiouchi Bridge on Hwy 199 off the Hatton Trail. During the summer months, there is a seasonal footbridge that provides access from the Jedediah Smith Campground.

This is a lovely trail that heads next to the beautifully turquoise Smith River. Along the way, you can expect views of both the riparian (near-stream) forest and the old-growth redwoods.

The southern end of this one connects to the River Trail and Mill Creek Trail JSSP near the Stout Grove Trailhead and parking area.

Flora & Fauna

California bay, tanoak, Douglas-fir, Pacific madrone. From later summer through fall the alal, huckleberry, and thimbleberry attract lots of wildlife.
