The rivers are breathtaking, but keep your eyes on the surrounding botanics as well! Six Rivers is home to six distinct botanical areas, set aside to protect them. The rare, carnivorous (!) California Pitcher Plant can be found in Myrtle Creek Botanical Area.
History of Six Rivers National Forest
Founded in 1947 by President Harry S. Truman, this forest is made up of portions of Klamath, Siskiyou and Trinity National Forests. Six rivers run through the landscape and give the park its melodious name, the Eel River, the Van Duzen River, the Klamath River, the Trinity River, the Mad River and the Smith River.
