Elk Creek

Road #306 - Sanhedrin Road. Numerous side roads lead to canyons and ridges, into the backcountry forest, Mendocino National Forest. Large land, private ranches. Big oaks, abundant wildflowers, rolling hills with creeks. Mountains nearby. Cattle, bison, OHV camping, dirt back roads. With more than 1000 farms, agriculture remains the primary source of Glenn County's economy - almonds, prunes, rice, milk, dairy products and livestock.
