Codfish Creek Falls Discovery Trail Brochure

You can now view, or download and print, the brochure "Codfish Creek Falls Discovery Trail." This brochure, beautifully illustrated by Colfax high school senior Heather Mehl under the guidance of Eric Peach and California State Parks & Recreation, highlights some of the plants, trees, and birds that can be seen along this lovely trail which meanders along the North Fork of the American River.
