El Corte de Madera Creek open space preserve has a history of logging, with, at one point, eight different mills along its creek banks. Its remote nature, coupled with steep terrain, kept loggers away until the 1860s. Resourceful entrepreneurs spent the next 50 years building and operating saw mills. Around the turn of the century, the mills were closed or nearing the end of their economic viability, but modern logging continued off and on until 1988, shortly after the open space preserve was created.
