Description

Access this multi-use (pedestrian/bike) trail from the marked trailhead at the Elk Meadow Day Use Area. It can also be accessed around the ~2.75-mile marker using the Streelow Creek Trail, which starts off Davison Road 1.5 miles up from Hwy 101.

This trail follows the route of a retired logging road that originally was used to access a lumber mill and log deck. The land was purchased by the National Parks Service in 1996 after which a huge initiative was started to rehabilitate the surrounding environment.

Bending through healthy stands of redwoods and thick groves of streamside alder trees, this path provides access to Lost Man Creek, Trillium Falls (no bicycles), and past Elk Prairie to the Prairie Creek Visitor Center.

Decent trail that's kinda different because of the redwoods. Turns into a singletrack before heading out toward Orick, and VERY thick brush next to… 3.4mi — 11h 00m
