The Headwaters Forest Reserve is 7,472 acres of public land located 6 miles southeast of Eureka, CA. The reserve is set aside to protect and preserve the ecological and wildlife values in the area, particularly the stands of old-growth redwood that provide habitat for the threatened marbled murrelet, and the stream systems that provide habitat for threatened coho salmon.
Since Headwaters Forest Reserve is part of a sensitive ecosystem, visitors should access this area appropriately. You are invited to take some time and enjoy the natural and historic values of this unique area. Learn more about hiking opportunities on the Plan Your Visit page.
