Beautiful day for a hike that will get your heart rate up for a good workout. Quiet trail meeting a mountain biker heading up as we were heading back to the trail head. Don’t know all the wild flowers but the white bushes have a nice sweet fragrance.

Nice trail, easy to find. Completely secluded, never saw another human after leaving 199. Easy uphill sections, nicely maintained trail, a few good views. Took us about an hour and a half to do the 4.5 miles to Rock Creek and back, so it's a nice way to kill an early morning. I enjoyed this one, will do it again.

Nice trail through evergreen forests and stunted serpentine forest. I love the diversity of plant life in the area and the wild feel of these woods and mountains. Though I’d say the Craigs Creek trail is a little more interesting and has better views of the river, this trail has very little poison oak and some cool Port Orford Cedars and Jeffery Pine. The elevation gain is a good warm up - the descent to Rock Creek is very gradual. The trail is a little overgrown but not too bad. Good half day hike in a beautiful river canyon.

Pretty good climb with big long switchbacks. Very well built trail in clay with natural fine rock mixed in. Only saw one biker pushing his bike up the steep trail. A lot of change in the type of forest as you climb.
