We attempted to locate this trailhead on May 30, 2020. Forest Service Road 4608 is still snow covered in places making it impassable for our car (there was also a truck parked at the turn so I’m assuming he had issues too). We will attempt to access this trailhead again later in the year. The views on the drive were beautiful and we found a roadside natural (marked) mountain spring so the trip wasn’t a total loss.

tried to go out there and hike today but the roads closed because of the flooding. I wish this app would have said it.

Not a trail for the timid. We hiked to Crooked Creek which is actually 7 miles in, not 6 like the sign states. Lots of fallen logs, washouts, overgrown and/or muddy sections. Be prepared for ticks, mosquitoes and lots of rattlesnakes. We encountered 6 the first day, so it's a good idea to wear ankle high boots and jeans for protection on this trail. There are long sections without shade and the trail is often high up, away from the river. Cold water is plentiful though, so is the wildlife. We saw Bighorn sheep, Elk and a huge brown bear strolling down the trail. Fishing is outstanding! There is no service on this trail and camping around crooked creek is limited. If you seek isolation and a taste of true wilderness, this is the trail for you.

First 3/4 of the trail was in good shape the last 1/4 was a bit muddy and the growth hasn't come back much - perhaps in another few weeks it will be a lot greener. Still a great hike and lots of wildflowers. As others noted its closer to 9 miles if you go to the very top. Was close to 4 hours total.

Hidden gem. It took about 3 hours total because we stopped at the top to re-fuel. pretty steep in most areas, but the mountainside views the entire way made it worthwhile.

Beautiful hike. There were two or three downed trees you need to climb over but nothing major. Saw tons of butterflies, good hike.

Closer to 6.8ish miles to camping on crooked. One big campsite at crooked (room to share if needed), another campsite up crooked .2 miles upstream from that, and half mile up from that. Plenty of wood. Some tent sites along the way on wenaha if you didn’t make it to crooked. The Day hike from crooked camp up to ridge on game trail is worth the 1200’ climb. Couldn’t coax fish to bite in crooked since it was blown out. Crooked crossing would be challenging, but doable. Just upstream from camp seemed like a shallow (fast) spot. Had kids with us so didn’t attempt. About 5 muddy spots and 3 or 4 downed logs to go over/around. Ticks abound so sock tuck pants. Didn’t see rattlers but group a day before us saw several. Great hike when higher hikes are snowed in.

I didn't finish the trail today due to the snow. I was maybe a quarter mile to finish, but had no gas in the tank. I was sinking into the snow at times. traction shoes are a must right now and I would wear something to keep snow out at ankle level at a minimum. there are a few downed trees blocking the trail at the start. it is also icy and slushy at the bottom. overall it's a difficult trail because the footing can be tough to particularly coming down.

Easy trail to walk, but lots of mud and a few water crossings. Also some downed trees blocking the trail. We went 3.3 miles and had a couple of clearings with views.

The trailhead is behind the green shop after the fence. Beautiful scenery. My kids and dogs enjoyed crossing the creek multiple times. only went a couple miles due to time.

This trail was decent. Hard to do with children under 5. My baby decided she wanted to eat and it was hard to find a good spot along the trail. My 3 year old kept falling on rocks. luckily she was holding her uncle's hand ,which kept her from getting hurt. Had to be carried most of the way. Nice but hard with kids. our group only made one mile up the trail. which had a very inclined part of the trail.
