Austin Creek State Recreation Area is comprised of 5,683 acres of oak woodlands, redwood forest, the headwaters of East Austin Creek, Fife Creek and Gilliam Creek. Elevations within the park range from 150 feet above sea level to almost 1,900 feet on Marble Mine Ridge.
The park includes twenty miles of hiking trails, two backcountry camp sites and Bull Frog Pond campground with twenty-four sites. The area is popular with equestrians, hikers and bicylists (on service roads). Wildflower displays are incredible during the spring and the area is prolific with a diversity of native plants and wildlife.
In addition, Austin Creek’s historic Pond Farm Pottery was the home, workshop, and school of the internationally renowned ceramic artist, Marguerite Wildenhain. Don't miss a chance to tour Pond Farm with Laura Parent on Satuday, May 28th (register online).
Without people out and about in this park it could fall prey to more pot growing operations, threats of fire, and vandalism.
