Goodman Trail is a 5.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Dexter, Oregon that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from April until November.
A well wooded trail that runs along side an inlet. After a brief climb, the trail crosses a few small creek beds before taking you through tall trees and fern lined views. Just short of two miles in, you will come across a small waterfall, that is very rewarding to your hike. Continue to the right just a few hundred yards to a large log bridge and Goodman Creek. Great picnic spot and turn around.
Completed mid March 2017. Muddy, steep, and beautiful. Loved it.
3/11/17 Great Hike. Super Muddy, and there's multiple trees down on the trail. These obstacles made it more fun for me; but if you're not prepared to hike in mud/flooded trails I recommend waiting till this trail drys out.
Lovely hike. Super muddy but quiet and beautiful.
We went in November and it was wet but not too muddy. We also turned around at the log bridge so it was just about 4 miles round trip. The ending log bridge with its pebbly beach is great for kids to hang out in after the journey for lunch.
Nice trail, not too difficult, but a bit wet mid-February---will try again when dryer
This trail is much longer than the app states, probably by about a mile. Several parts of the trail were poorly kept and at one point, there was no way across the creek without risking to go in. Following a road back in my book does not count as a loop trail and I even had to walk right next to the highway to get back to the trailhead. As for the sights, there's not much of the creek.
Great hike. Mostly shaded.Not very well marked but the path it's pretty easy to "decypher". Bearly saw anybody on the trail.
Fantastic trail, especially if you go all the way to the top.
Trail is mostly shaded by trees and brush with small glimpse of the sun. I didn't run into any waterfalls, however there were a few streams and ponds. Half way into hike is a small lookout, which I guess is the view. Very beautiful. The hike is very strenuous, so I would recommend to stretch prior to hike.
it was a blast.
What a beautiful treat after a nice hike through the forest.
