The Fall Creek trail follows Fall Creek up the drainage. Explore this beautiful babbling creek and the natural surrounding of Henry Cowell Redwood State Park.

Beautiful trail but ended up a bit longer than 9 miles for us. A portion of the trail on the Fall Creek side is washed away and you have to traverse logs jammed in the river to get around it. Also many downed trees on that side but otherwise awesome!

The trail had a pretty difficult incline towards the beginning, but there were no problems. Some of the trail markers were missing or confusing, so I used the map on all trails. There were several small bridges out that you could cross on logs or walk through if you have water proof shoes. There were a few spots where the trail was damaged. One part the trail had fallen completely off the side of the hill, so we had to take an alternate route making the trail 2 miles longer. You can see details of locations if you view my photos. Overall good hike, but a lot of incline and decline. If you go the direction I went to the left at the split then the top of the big incline is at "Big Ben Tree."

Trail above lime quarry washed out in recent storms. Not impassable, but you'll get wet trying.
