The Byrne-Milliron Forest is a 400-acre working forest owned by the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County. It has been managed for nearly 30 years for sustainable timber yield and enhanced forest health. This redwood forest has one of the most diverse understories you’ll see in redwood forests. You will also find pockets of maritime chaparral and oak woodland. What you won’t find are many invasive weeds!
809 Browns Valley Road, Corralitos, CA.
Open sunrise to sunset daily.
TIPS FOR YOUR VISIT
Dogs are welcome. You know your dog, if it has any aggression to people or other dogs, please keep it on a leash.
No bicycles or horses allowed.
There are hidden treasures throughout the forest – a legacy of the caretaker of 28 years who recently passed, Jeff Helmer.
There are 10 miles of roads and trails for hiking – much of it is steep and some are narrow, rustic trails. Wear sturdy shoes and bring water. The trails through the forest are magical and the views at the top are worth the effort.
Invasive weeds are always sneaking in. Climate change may impact the ability for the redwoods to persist.
