    Awesome hike though gorgeous old growth forest. It was a little confusing once reaching the bottom. There is a large clearing with a several campsites but lacking easy access to the water. The trail degrades significantly after this but keep going until you reach the 2nd campsite for the best views and access to the water.

    It’s hard to give any trail with expansive views of clear cut forest more than 2 stars.

    If you use your phone’s GPS (and Google Maps) like I did the red trail line in the app has you starting at the shooting range. Don’t do that. Go up the road another hundred feet and that’s the proper trailhead. The split between west and east side of the loop is another 1/4 mile up after the tiny creek crossing the trail. Giving this 5 stars because I hiked 5 miles in on both a Sat and Sunday and never saw another human. So if solitude is your thing this is perfect. Several nice areas to camp out along the the river every half mile or so. The cement bridge over Fish Creek about 3 miles up is another great spot to camp. Previous post is correct in that the lack of other hikers allows larger game animals to feel more at home. These hills have eyes!

    Easy relaxing hike along Wilson River. 4 stars because of the noise from highway 6 but the river is so loud in portions it actual drowns out the sound of the motor vehicles. Teeny-Tiny Waterfall is a must see about half way between foot-bridge and Forest Center. Many areas to hike down to the rivers edge for lunch and a lazy nap in the sun. Went on a Sunday late morning and surprised by the lack of other hikers. Perfect for kids and a easy one hour drive from Portland.

    Oh my the lovely jarring sounds of motor bikes and attendant stench of petrol wafting through the trees. Then add Oregon’s finest doomsday “preppers” shootin’ up the hills. Finally top it off with the pleasure of walking through multiple clear-cut forests. What a wretched slice of Tillamook for a Sunday afternoon.
