Davison Hike/Bike Trail follows a former logging road that once led to a lumber mill and log deck. The National Park Service purchased this land in 1996 and launched a massive project to restore the landscape. Trails now pass wetlands, hills, and streams that are slowly returning to healthy conditions.
Hikers and bikers can observe spawning salmon, stalking herons, and migrating songbirds in the recovering wetlands and forests. The route winds through stately stands of redwoods and thick groves of streamside alder trees. Trails also lead to Lost Man Creek, Trillium Falls (no bicycles), and past Elk Prairie to the Prairie Creek Visitor Center.
