There is a lot just down the road from the entrance to the old dirt road where you can park, eat, and enjoy the creek view! (with bathrooms as well) We hiked and then when we got back to our car, drove to the parking lot to have lunch at the picnic table!

Cute little trail tucked away in the creases of the Ellison Creek Canyon! Deep water, able to jump in from the log (check of course before you jump). Water was very refreshing and hike wasn't bad at all!!! PICK UP YOUR TRASH
