Redwood Parks Trail Closure

California State Parks National Park Service Redwood Parks Conservancy announcement

Important news for visitors to Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park: California State Parks, Save the Redwoods League, National Park Service, and Redwood Parks Conservancy have begun a project within the park to safeguard the Grove of Titans. Beginning Nov. 6, 2019, construction will begin on a 1,300-foot-long elevated walkway through the grove. During construction, from November 2019 to May 2021, the Mill Creek Trail will be closed from Howland Hill Road to the Smith River. Access to the Grove of Titans is closed. For park visitors’ safety, the area around the Grove of Titans will be fenced off and closed. Any park visitors in violation of the posted closure will be subject to a citation.

Park visitors may use the nearby Boy Scout Tree, Nickerson Ranch, Little Bald Hills, or Stout Grove trails, which are accessible from Howland Hill Road. For more recommendations on trail alternatives to avoid the potentially hazardous construction area, visit the California State Parks website.
