The South Creek Trail is an ‘out-and-back’ accessible trail that is 0.82 miles each way that offers an intimate walk along Lagunitas Creek past the historic dam and paper mill sites. Seasonally, visitors can view spawning salmon in the creek from vantage points along the trail. The surface is compacted soil and is usable year-round. There are several armored crossings on the trail that water flows over the trail during rain events that might be challenging for some users. The trail is generally flat at less than 5% slopes with intermittent sections between 5% to 8%. Accessible parking is available at the Creekside Campground restroom building adjacent to the Cross Marin Trail.

The Cross Marin Trail is a paved and unpaved multiple-use trail operated by the Marin Water District that passes through the park for 3.5 miles. The trail is generally accessible and includes some interpretive panels at historic sites. Accessible parking is available at the Azalea day use and Redwood Grove group picnic areas.
