We hiked this segment of the North Umpqua Trail upstream. We got an early start and initially passed by some families camping at the Wright Creek campgrounds. Soon we were by ourselves on this very lush and green part of the trail, paralleling the river most of the time. There is a short interpretive loop of old growth forest that is well worth the sideline. The river alternated between active rapids and long deep, still pools and various sandy beaches. We passed a few fly fishermen and only saw a few other people on the trail at the end of the hike near the Mott bridge. There is no serious elevation gain on this segment and the trail is easy.
