Hidden Falls Regional Park – Coon Creek Restoration

Auburn, California

Hidden Falls Regional Park is an 1180-acre open space park in Placer County with many opportunities for passive recreation and multi-use trails. Coon and Deadman Creeks flow through the park along with waterfalls. Foothill Associates developed conceptual plans, construction documents, and cost estimate for riparian restoration and bank stabilization along Coon Creek. Restoration included a swale to help handle water runoff and perennial grass seed and willows. Design of the restoration area included a rest area with interpretive signs, kiosk, and picnic areas.

 

The restoration of Coon Creek was completed as part of a larger project where Foothill Associates also provided trail planning, site design and evaluation, cost estimating, and schematic design of park access roads and hiking and equestrian staging areas, aesthetic design of three new bridges and an overlook, and park/visitor center site facility rehab.
