Travelers Home Trailhead

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

The first three miles of this trail are passable. Beyond that the conditions are unknown.

This trail starts about 12 miles out of Covelo at a logging landing trailhead on Road 24N21 signed "Travelers Home Trail" and ends in the Wild and Scenic area of the Middle Fork Eel River. This trail is a bit hot and muggy during summer, but it's a nice low elevation day hike in the fall, spring, and winter. There are plenty of picnic spots as the trail passes through stands of conifer, oak, glades, and meadows. There are some long, steep grades so pack plenty of water.
