I really like the Beazell Forest... this time of the year, everything is just dripping with green moss! I started out on the steep trail going up to the meadow, then turn RT and following the trail back through the woods to Plunkett Creek, and then back to the barn.

Nice hike, it gets pretty tight and overgrown on the accent to the summit and the view point. We parked by the barn, but followed the map to the next driveway down and started there, but it was unnecessary, and behind the barn has the info centers and the trail head. It was a nice loop, took us about 1 hour 30 minutes to complete.

Sweet little State Park. For the South Ridge Trail, follow signs to the South Loop and South Meadow. Go left at the top instead of following signs to the South Ridge. It was noisy after about 7:30 with nearby farm equipment. Go before 7 for a more peaceful hike. The first mile is uphill. After that, it's easy. You'll hike through the woods and around a meadow. At the top, there are peekaboo territorial views.

Nice little hike if you're in the area! I drove from Salem and thought it was a little far for a short 2 miles. But it feels very secluded - didn't come across one other person on the trail which is rare!

This is a great little out and back. We went while it was a little snowy and it was amazing!

This is a very nice hike to do with dogs! Easy & moderate levels of difficulty.
