Brooktrails is a census-designated place and an unincorporated community in Mendocino County, California[4] which shares the Willits zip code, 95490.[5] The population was 3,235 at the 2010 census.[6]


After being extensively logged from the 1880s to the middle of the twentieth century,[7] Brooktrails Township was founded under a special provision in state law.[8] It was marketed as a vacation mountain retreat for San Franciscans in the 1970s.[7] It has approximately 6,600 parcels varying in size from 0.3 acres (0.12 ha) to 10 acres (4.0 ha). The smaller parcels are mostly surrounded by the Township owned Brooktrails Redwood Park[9] 2,600 acres (1,100 ha)[10] forest green belt composed of Tan Oak, Douglas Fir and Redwood.[11] Brooktrails has over 30 hiking trails and two lakes, Lake Emily and Lake Ada Rose, that store and direct water to its water treatment plant.[12] There is also a small market, and a deli. The Brooktrails Township Community Services District, governed by a five-member elected board of directors, provides water, sewer, and recreational services to the residents.[12][13]

In 2012, Mendocino County paid the back assessments on hundreds of abandoned Brooktrails lots although they stopped paying water, sewer and fire assessments for those lots.[8]

The entire community of Brooktrails was evacuated in September 2020 due to the threat of the Oak Fire.[14]


According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP covers an area of 7.3 square miles (19 km2), 99.36% of it land, and 0.64% of it water. The Fire Department and golf course lie at an elevation of 1,634 feet (498 m), but its western edge rises to nearly 3,000 feet (910 m).[2]
