I liked the boy scout built bridge with four totem poles. I ran the rest of the trail.

Long wide level trail. About 2/3 of the way down there is a cool wooden bridge with 4 totem poles. There is also a lookout tower near the bridge, but it does not provide a view. At the end is beautiful Northwest River and a little park-like area.
