Hobbs Wall Professional Reviews and Guides

"A somewhat more adventurous hike around the thickly forested basin of Mill Creek’s upper West Branch. The trail heads down through sparse old-growth fragments to the verdant creek-side riparian zone surrounding Mill Creek Campground. From here a short stretch along the access road brings hikers to the wilder, more challenging ups and downs of the return loop."

It is tempting to assume that the Hobbs Wall Trail gets its name from the wall of logs beneath US 101, but in fact the name comes from the nineteenth-century entrepreneurial firm Hobbs, Wall & Co., which had extensive land and timber holdings in Del Norte County from the mid-1800s to the 1940s.The company had a large mill and logging operation set up in the Mill Creek Valley just north of the park. Beginning in 1884 the company ran a short railway called the Crescent City & Smith River Railroad, which ran several miles up the Mill Creek drainage, well into the present park lands."
