Hike 16: Hammond Trail – Hiller Park

DSCN4241

The Hammond Trail and Hiller Park comprise McKinleyville’s primary recreation resource. The portion of the Hammond Trail selected for this hike runs through forest and neighborhoods and provides views of the Mad River estuary. Hiller Park offers an excellent example of the spruce forest that once covered the marine terrace that is now McKinleyville. Numerous interpretive signs along the route provide an educational diversion on this mellow, suburban hike. The Hammond Trail extends another 1.1 miles south to Mad River Road and 2.3 miles north to Clam Beach, allowing for a roundtrip hike of up to 12 miles.
