Amazing and beautiful hike. Shaded the majority of the way. We followed the "red line" on the map to the "T" and it was about a 7.75-8 mile hike. Not sure why it says 5.9 on the description and loop. If we would have had time we may have enjoyed the river a bit...maybe next time.

Great trail system, the pin on this location can send you to the wrong spot if opened in google maps. It's not too hard to find off s. Dickey prairie rd.

Must've gotten bad directions. Ended up stopped at a gate on S Mololla Forest Rd, continued on foot down the road for about 1.5 miles until it returned to pavement and could see a house up ahead. No trails leading off and everything on both sides of the road was posted. Was a nice walk otherwise, but not what I had in mind...

I spent a few hours hiking some of these trails with my dog today. It is a beautiful area...the river, trees, trails, creeks, and small waterfalls. The trail system goes on forever.....or it seems like it. They are doing some logging using helicopters and such so some areas are off limits right now, but normally the trails are open year round to hikers and seasonally to bikes and horses. Only annoyance I noticed was the amount of trash along the road by the river. I really wish people would throw their trash in the actual garbage not just wherever they want. Otherwise the area is great...awesome hiking, well marked and maintained trails. Watch out for some fallen trees and the snow at the summit of Rim Trail. The trails are marked by difficulty as well and the maps at the info areas are very helpful. Worth the trip!

Lots of trails with different difficulty levels, that way many people of all experience can enjoy the ride. It keeps you wanting to go back.
