    Eric Garrett reviewed Mount Bailey Trail

    3 months ago

    Did this yesterday 6-14-18. The road to the parking area is dry and clear, but there are some deep tire tracks to watch out for. The trail is clear until you get above the tree line. I was able to get over/around the snow in my trail running shoes. However, when I got to the ridge after what I refer to as “the window” looking at Diamond Lake and Thielsen, the snow piled up against the rocks and over the trail seemed too dangerous for what I was wearing. I would say July would be the best time to start this one if you’re not into snowshoeing, etc. The views were spectacular and the trail is very well maintained. I definitely recommend it. Bring plenty of water because the incline is gnarly the closer you get to the top. Happy exploring.

    Hikes this today 5/28/18. My FitBit watch said it was over 13 miles round trip, but I did go off trail a few times to navigate over and around the snow. It was pretty strenuous due to the amount of snow still on the ground. This would’ve probably been a beautiful hike, but a large portion of the forest has been burned out due to the fires in 2017. There are a lot of burnt trees covering the trail and my hiking pack, as well as the clothes I wore, both had black streaks on them from rubbing on the trees as I went around them. I managed to make it to the falls using the gps feature on AllTrails and The Hiking Project apps. I did fall a few times because the snow sucked my leg in up to mid thigh. Overall, it was a good workout, but I think you can probably find a lot better waterfall elsewhere. Happy exploring.

    Nice hike. Pretty quick and easy. The only semi tough part was the stretch of uphill road you climb to the top. Good amount of wildflowers and nice views of Shasta, McLoughlin, and Pilot Rock. There was mud at the beginning of the trail and it was thick, so bring an extra pair of shoes/socks if it has recently rained.

    Eric Garrett reviewed Kerby Peak Trail

    Loved this trail. I hadn’t hiked in a while, so I had to take a lot of breaks on the way up, but it was worth it. The sign at the trailhead says 3.5 miles to the peak, so it’s 7 miles round trip. It was really foggy on the way up, but started breaking up at the top and we had a great view above the clouds. I will definitely do this again.

    Total distance was almost 10 miles on the dot. Great views of snowy mountains and Applegate Lake. Uphill all the way up, so I would suggest doing this in cooler weather. Rewarding view at the top.

    Eric Garrett reviewed Little Grayback Trail to Mule Mountain Loop via Applegate Lake

    7 months ago

    Butt cheeks beware! There is a lot of incline on this one. I followed this exactly as it’s laid out and my Fitbit watch said it was 16.7 miles, so 1 mile longer than All Trails has it. You get 360 degree views because your essentially circling the mountains. About 6.5 miles of the total is walking from the parking lot to the Little Grayback Trail (3.62 miles) and from the gate on Upper Applegate at the end of the trails back to the parking lot (2.83 miles). The most dangerous part of the entire hike is the walk back to your vehicle on Upper Applegate. Use the All Trails app to GPS yourself when you get close to the connecting trails. The transition from Grayback to Trail 918 is not marked. When you get to the point of transition, go left and you’ll see a trail with a very steep decline that leads to a road that you can clearly see. The road is Trail 918 and it will dead-end at the Baldy Peak/Mule Trailhead. When you reach the next transition from 918 to 919, make sure you veer left. When you get to the bottom there is a sign that says Mule Mtn, veer right and it will take you to Upper Applegate Rd. Hope this helps. Happy hiking!

    Nice trail. Do a little research beforehand, so you know what you’re looking at at the top. We decided to try the loop and lost the trail at the dog kennel area, but wound up going through the woods towards Highway 62. Then walked to the road that leads into Lost Creek Lake. Got on the Rogue River Trail, walked along the spillway, and made it back to our vehicle. 11 miles total.

    Did this in the fall. Didn’t do the scramble because I have no rock climbing background. The switchbacks heading up to the rock are pretty steep. Great workout. Peaceful hike.
