The Shinglemill Creek stream bed is gravel/pebble/sand and the presence of standing dead trees of mature age and layered organic and sand substrata in the lower reaches testify to numerous flood events and stream channel migrations over the years. The understory is predominately salmonberry and sword fern. The canopy is typical lowland forest of alder, maple, willow, hemlock, fir, and cedar. The steep canyon slopes are heavily forested.
