Bald Hills Road is a public road operated and maintained by Humboldt County from US Highway 101 near Orick to SH 169 at Martin's Ferry Bridge, a distance of 32.2 miles.
The portion of Bald Hills Road inside the project area extends from the southeast edge of Childs Hill Prairie (Post Mile 13.46) to the intersection of Williams Ridge Road (P.M. 16.05). The road segment proposed for improvement is located in Redwood National Park within the Bald Hills Management Zone, an area of interrelated natural and cultural landscape features including the Lyons Ranches Historic District and the Bald Hills Archeological District. There are an additional 2.9 miles of unpaved road in Redwood National Park between the park boundary (P.M. 19.0) and Williams Ridge Road (P.M. 16.05), adjacent to the proposed project.
