Nickerson Ranch trail is near Stout Grove and a great place to hike in the redwood forest.

 Mill Creek empties into the Smith River just across from Jedediah State Park, a beautiful campground and incredible place to sleep among the giant redwoods.          Redwood tree in Stout Grove, I think it was about 32 paces around and they get as tall as the Empire State Building.
The Smith River is a great place to kayak in fall and winter and spring, summer the river starts getting a little shallow. The river was 'topped off' this year with high rainfall and is still high enough for river rafting. It's a little colder than usual and the current is a little stronger, so be a little more careful.
Jones creek is a tributary to the south fork of the Smith River. It's about 12 miles up South Fork Road a little past the "GO" road, (Gasquet Orleans Road). It's a beautiful little paradise, there is a summer rental available close by.
The Beautiful Smith River winds around some of the most beautiful Redwood trees and landscape imaginable!
