Fall Creek is the northern area of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. One of the park’s best kept secrets, it is 2,390 acres – the entire watershed of Fall Creek – and has about 20 miles of hiking trails. Most of these trails follow old wagon and logging roads that once led to busy industrial sites.
Parking is free! From Highway 17, take the Scotts Valley/Mount Hermon Rd exit. Continue on Mt. Hermon Road for 3.8 miles. Turn right onto Graham Hill Road. Continuing past Highway 9, the road now becomes Felton-Empire Grade. Go about 1/2 mile and turn right into the parking lot. Caution, it is very easy to miss this turn.
