Williams Grove Trail: Humboldt Redwoods State Park

Lots of rain last few days. Here, Bull Creek enters the muddy, swift south fork of the Eel River. Across the Eel you can see redwood trunks with high water stains on them, probably from the 64' flood?

Williams Grove Trail

I drove down to Humboldt Redwood State Park yesterday and hiked along the Williams Grove Trail from Williams Grove to Hidden Springs campground and then walked back to my car via the Avenue of the Giants. It was probably 5 miles round trip with a couple of cool surprises. It's a quiet little trail through some old growth, as well as second growth forest and travels onto some drier hillsides.

Before that, I tried one more time to spot salmon spawning activity but came up empty handed. Perhaps it's not to be this year. The Eel was running swift and muddy due to a couple days of significant rain this weekend. Bull creek was also running high and fast. Lots of mushrooms are still on display right now...
