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.
