Austin Creek State Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide

"A hidden, wild world lurks in the rumpled Coast Range north of the Russian River. Here you will find a diverse natural world of oak woodlands, redwood groves, far-reaching vistas, and fantastic spring wildflowers, all tucked deep within secluded canyons. To get to the trailhead, you must drive a thrilling, one-lane road that first passes beneath the gigantic old-growth redwoods of Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve before climbing more than 1,000 feet at a 12-percent grade to dead-end atop a ridge with spectacular views."
