a great hike in southern Oregon, as the trail leads you through forest and opens to great views of the valley & surrounding mountains. can remain snowy on the north/shadowed side so plan ahead! easily a 3-4 hour loop if you don't hurry through it. dogs love it too.
Fun trail! I have driven by it many times headed to Applegate Lake and never saw it. Only complaint about the description is that it doesn't say much about the the trail continuing. It connects to a network of trails. Baldy Peak is the nearest mountain with an actual lookout. Pretty well maintained trail.
lots of downed trees the first mile with the creek rerouted onto the trail for a section. Once you got passed that it was fine until the thick snow towards the top. thankfully a trail runner came the opposite direction so i followed his prints. I would have not known where the trail was otherwise because of the snow. Not many scenic overlooks as I was hoping. Decent trail overall.
Hiked this trail on 1-15-17. From Corvallis and was staying in Prospect as part of a family vacation to check out Crater Lake. Saw the parking lot of this place on my way to the store and went to check it out. It's a fairly steep downhill trail and I did it in pajamas and basketball shoes in the snow! Loved it! Cool waterfall. Awesome view! Wish I could've gotten to the bottom of it. I posted pictures! Definitely worth it. Follow my adventures on Instagram @ Robdoesitall
