South Fork Boulder Creek Rd 6110
The lowermost, eastern terminus of Taylor Ridge TR 074 is located at the bottom of the Tom Creek drainage, approximately 2.6 miles south of Boulder Creek Road, on South Fork Boulder Creek TR 6110-000.
Trailhead markings may be missing at this time (2023), and the Tom Creek portion of the trail may not show on all GPS map layers. Nonetheless, a GPS device may be useful for helping you identify the Tom Creek drainage and locate the trail during your first visit.
In 1998 a series of landslides closed the northern end of South Fork Boulder Creek FR 6110-000, obliterating thru-traffic for highway vehicles. But in 2022 reroutes were installed to restore South Fork Boulder Creek as a thru-road, and improve access to the bottom of Taylor Ridge Trail.
