Swim at Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area

Rate this Adventure San Francisco South Fork Eel River

Added by The Outbound Collective

Laze in the cool calm section of the Eel River--cliff jumping also an option!

Driving along Redwood Highway you will see a parking area at the South Eel River Fork. Park here and then walk the very short distance to the section of river that is calm, cool, and inviting you to jump in. Pack a picnic and a beach umbrella and enjoy the natural beauty around you.

Hike the Tabor Nature Trail

San Francisco / Taber Nature Trail, Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area

Signs at the trail head for the Tabor Trail state it is 1.1 miles long. That is much shorter than the actual 1.8 miles my GPS put it at. The trail sign also claims it is wheelchair accessible.
