Description
This remote and wild valley abounds with wildlife and scenic beauty. The land still contains evidence of its historic use as ranchland by the Murphy family—from old plows to the remnants of old farm buildings. Its lush grasses and the almost cove-like shape of the hills surrounding the valley give it a distinctly pastoral feel. Marsh Creek, which runs seasonally under the bridge at the beginning of the trail, is an ideal place to soak your feet after a satisfying hike. The park also features several picnic areas and one camping area. Hours: 8am- sunset (varies seasonally)
