This was the west half of the green trail I had not walked. I walked in a counter clockwise direction which followed the edge of the timber clear cutting. Where the blue trail pulled of I walked near a creek bottom that was very pretty before climbing elevation up from the river to enter the clear cut area again. The trail was clearly marked through the clear cut areas.

This was a really, really terrific place that ended up being more than 9 miles. Started out creepy and became a revelation, including the areas where trees have been cleared due to pine beetle infestation. Seemed otherworldly.

The sections of the trail that cross the clear-cut have been blazed with 3-4 foot tall stakes marked with green blazes. Beginning and end points, and trail intersections with other trails, are marked with trail posts. The trail is continuous throughout.

Trail is still here - beginning, middle, and end intersect with logging area but still doable. Looks like someone cleared it recently as well

Contrary to previous posts, the green loop trail still exists. Both beginning points at the church have been affected by the clear cut operations, but the bulk of the trail is still intact. Beginning at the church, if you hike the loop left to right, look for green and white blazes, and an orange ribbon, on a small pine tree. If you’re standing at the gate at the church the left side entry point is approximately 10:00. If you want to hike right to left on the trail the right side entrance is a little harder to find because the trail begins about 75 yards into the clear cut. Standing at the gate, the right side entrance is at about 1:00. Some green blazes have been painted on the remaining trees in the area to help guide you to the trail entrance. The entrance is also flagged with pink ribbon. Trail maintenance is ongoing. Hopefully, within the next month or two, trail markers/posts will be added at trail intersection points.

Extensive cutting being done because of Pine Beetles. No trail to speak of. Avoid at this time.

nice 2 miles goes close to the river. Make you're own trail to it but not much to see. I'll try the other trail's from that site. They look interesting.

First to Review

Quiet and beautiful trail! Trails are well maintained and all blowback has been pushed aside or cut through. We only saw 2 other people on the trail. A perfect pre-brunch hike with scenic views and enough incline to make you sweat! Happy St.Patricks Day! Now, off to a patio and beers!!
