Trails (Smith River NRA)

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

There are a wide variety of trails in the Smith River National Recreation Area that range from Siskiyou Wilderness trails to the botanical beauty of the Myrtle Creek and Darlingtonia interpretive trails where visitors can view a variety of rare and endangered plants and wildflowers. There are also quite a few short trails (under four miles) that offer scenic views of the Smith River National Recreation Area.

It is not possible for us to visit all trails on a frequent basis. We often must rely on reports from the public concerning current trail conditions. If you visit any trails on the forest and note conditions different from what is listed here, we invite and welcome you to report what you observe to our recreation and wilderness program manager, Bryson Code, at
