beautiful area but my little concern was the road up to the trail area was little rough also at the trail head people threw out poopy baby diapers, trash, wipes and sleeping bag. It will be nice if we always keep our Oregon Trail heads clean from trash. Overall beautiful area

Beautiful hike. Lots of big trees and river at the bottom. A bit of a work out coming back up but if your in average health you'll be ok just take it slow and steady. Lots of photo opportunities. Bring water and a lunch if you do it all at once. Our dogs loved it!

Great trail! Only saw 2 other hikers, nice creek at the bottom for my dog to play in. Steep coming back out but well worth it

Make sure you have an off road vehicle and survival gear - and bear spray.

A really lovely secluded trail. The camp sites at the bottom of the trail are all creekside and very pretty, with plenty of good trees to string a hammock from. There's not too much to do when you get down there (as there aren't any other trails to explore), but bring along a hammock and a good book and you're all set.

Brushy trail down to a beautiful creek full of crawdads. There are ten or so little campsites scattered throughout the forest along the creek. It's a little bit of a climb back out but worth it.

All downhill going in and uphill going back. Relatively easy hike. Nice old trees along the way and ends at a nice stream that is a great camping area. Check out the crayfish in the stream. There are not that many, so protect the few that are there for others to see.

This was a wonderful hike! You'll have to take a somewhat secluded, beat up road to get to the trailhead. Heading down the mountain consisted of beautiful, fairytale like scenery with old trees, wildlife, mushrooms, and clovers everywhere! At the bottom, you will reach a creek full of snails and crawdads. We had a lot of fun hanging out down there for a few hours. Bit of a steep hike back up, but worth every step!

Definitely "lightly trafficked". When I got there, there was a man leaving. Then I had the trail to myself until I was on my way back out some people were hiking in. The forest views were lovely with lots of huge trees. The path is clear. Do not forget to bring bug repellent. Lots of flying bugs and a ton of spider webs in the trail. When you get to the creek there does not appear to be a good access point. My pup and I slid down a hill with loose dirt but the "bank" was no bigger than 2 ft in width. My dog enjoyed playing in the water and definitely needed to cool off. Also this is not a trail to take horses on.

Path is wonderful. No issues. Can see that a big tree had just been recently cleared. Thank you whoever you are for doing that. The way back up was pretty tough for a new hiker. But we made it back up in an hours time. The trillium were in full bloom. Very nice hike. Next time may hike in to camp for the weekend.

I've only been down the trail 2 miles, however the trees and forest are beautiful. At two miles in there is a huge fallen tree. Be careful of that. I look forward to going further another time.
