This THP is 20 miles east of Eureka, CA and 11 miles SW of Willow Creek, CA at an elevation of 2,480 to 4,400 feet. Sierra Pacific Industries is planning a mostly clearcut tractor and cable logging operation in Douglas fir forest. The THP area flows into Redwood Creek which is listed as an impaired watershed for sediment/siltation and temperature, and the Mad River which is listed as an impaired watershed for sediment/siltation, temperature and turbidity. Three road drainage sites are planned for work including rocking, dip construction and culvert repair/replacement. There are 9 spotted owl nesting territories within 1.3 miles of the THP area.
