HikingBlowdownBridge outIcyMuddyOver grown

You can’t access the trail via the lower canyon. There is a bridge out and closed road. I had to turn around and drive up to the top of Coyote Ridge and hike down to the canyon/river. Once down by the river the trail looks like it hasn’t been maintained in a while. Assuming that I had seen the best part of the trail already I turned around after several blow downs and over grown trail conditions in the canyon. It’s about 5 miles to the bottom where I turned around and went back up.

Easy trail to walk, but lots of mud and a few water crossings. Also some downed trees blocking the trail. We went 3.3 miles and had a couple of clearings with views.

Umatilla hike, with beautiful spring wildflower, and gorgeous vistas of the blue mountains.

Nice area - the road to trailhead is still under snow. Unable to pass.

Hiked to the Coyote Creek campsite and back from the lower trail head. The trail is overgrown but still easy to follow. There were two spots with downed trees over the trail and a few spots with thick mud. The trail crosses a few small creeks that are easy to get across. Lots of butterflies and wildflowers along the way.

Had a lot of downed trees making trail hard. Might've been time of year

Hiked the northern (approximately 2 miles) end of the trail. Accessed via coyote ridge trail head near tollgate Oregon. Beautiful scenery of the valleys. Be careful about foot placement on this section of trail, steep hillside and semi loose rocks and dust on the trail. I'll add photos and the track of this section.
