I used this trail to make a big loop that included the Roadside trail and the Rock Creek trail from the Riley Creek campground.

Fun little hike!

The trail starts near the post office and can be tricky at times with roads and loops coming off in different directions. The highlight is tundra, a mountain stream and the huge railroad bridge. There is not a lot of elevation change so it's a good trail for anyone.

Was with my 77 y.o. mother and she was able to walk this trail without a problem. We just walked part of it from the visitor center back to Riley Creek Campground. One spot we went down was a little steep/rocky where she might have had a little difficulty had we been going uphill, but would have been able to make it.
