Less than an hour's drive north from San Francisco, the 2,882 acres of Samuel P. Taylor State Park is within easy driving distance of some of northern California's most dramatic outdoor scenery. The park features a unique contrast of coastal redwood groves and open grassland. The park also features a variety of flowers and trees, including oak, tanoak, madrone, live oak, laurel and Douglas fir. California native wildflowers include buttercups, milkmaids, and Indian paintbrush. The most common animal in the park is the black-tailed deer. There are also raccoons, striped skunks and gray foxes. Silver salmon and steelhead trout migrate up Papermill Creek to spawn.

Nice hike, super easy. a couple of downed trees at the start that are a little tricky to get through but smooth sailing afterwards.

Beautiful and easy stroll among redwood. The leisurely walk took us about 2 hours with us pausing many times to capture beautiful scenery on our phones.

Quite muddy at the moment, but that makes it nice and secluded. Lush, short hike.

Beautiful tree hike in a peaceful setting that was done back in 2010 and again a year later
