One of my favorite trails. Great wildflowers and lots of birds. Have seen deer near the end where it goes into the forest near the bridge. Back in the day when it was the Gorge South River trail it was quite dull, but its connection with Cascade has added a lot of interest.

I came to this trail to get a high view from the bridge but discovered that I would need to trespass to get hat view. The trail is mostly beaten down gravel along a power line. The river is just within ear shot that you hear the flow of water but can't really see it. The smells I experienced were enough to keep me away again. To get just a little but further down the trail where you actually walk on a beaten dirt path with lush green trees you need to descend down quite a few stairs.
