This is an easy trail off forest route 25. It can be accessed from Hayes Hill Summit on Highway 199, or drive to it from the Merlin-Agness (Galice) road. It is a pleasant walk through the forest, and if you hike longer down the Briggs Creek trail you may find blowdowns and brush from the Klondike Fire. The feature is a historic gold mine, along the creek's edge. As you are walking on the trail, you will pass 'bluffs' which are the remnants of hydraulic mining. Trail can be accessed from the Sam Brown horse camp, or off the hairpin turn 0.3 miles past the camp. there will be a steep downhill to the left (this part best for 4 wheel drive only). Trail is shorter this way.

2018 fire decimated the entire route here from the north Grants Pass, unpaved way. (from Galice the paved road is a nice drive). About a mile in, the forest fire wiped out a 1/4 mile section the trail, 4' trees fell over. Several creek crossings with no bridges. Un-burnt sections are very overgrown trail now, as its not been maintained in a couple years at least. Many eye charging gnats. The unmarked ATV (guessing miner) trail that criss crosses is well maintained tho, but mining claims filed all over the creekway.
