East Austin Creek Fire Road Professional Reviews and Guides

"This challenging hike takes you through some of the most beautiful backcountry in the region. You descend 1000 feet during the first 1.5 miles of the hike and climb the same amount near the end, so be in good shape and bring plenty of food and water. Before attempting this hike, first check with the rangers at the Armstrong Woods entrance kiosk. This trail includes numerous fords of Gilliam Creek and East Austin Creek, and in wet weather, they may be impassible. In the dry season, all open flame may be prohibited, and in the worst conditions, the trail may be completely closed."

"A hidden, wild world lurks in the rumpled Coast Range just north of the Russian River. Closely packed ridges rise more than 1,000 feet above narrow canyons barely 200 feet above sea level. The nearby San Andreas Fault has shaped the area, squeezing it upward, riddling it with smaller faults. Heavy rainfall then dissects the terrain, eroding the folded landscape into today’s convoluted topography."
