Great trail! Difficulty mostly for length. Although there was a bit of a hill on the first half it was rewarded with a great view. There is a llittle exposure and slippery areas throughout but nothing difficult and all the exposure was accompanied by a wide trail. Not a lot of brush hanging in the trail so no ticks on this segment which was a big plus! I did this hike the end of last month. Stopped at the Susan creek bridge and had a quick lunch and checked out Susan Creek Falls on the other side of the road. I actually liked the second half of the hike heading towards Mott more than the first half. But both had wonderful views, great trail conditions, and neat little waterfalls throughout. Defiantly suggest this segment to anyone who wants to know what this trail is about, and it was a great introduction to this trail system for myself as well.

We were a bit hesitant to do the second leg of this (Susan creek east) due to the comments about the slide and having memories of last year’s log hop on the first section. But the slide and downed trees have been dealt with. It was a beautiful hike. No access issues at all.

Hiked from Swiftwater...many trees down, but passable. At 11.7 miles in there is a big slide. Loose dirt and nothing to grab on to made it too risky for me to pass.

5 miles in there’s an uncrossable landslide we had to turn around and in our trail and a 10 miles

The Oregon winter was not kind to the lower section of this trail from Swiftwater up to the Susan Creek bridge. There were a large number of trees down across the path, and in several places, the root ball completely obliterated the path. Additionally, in the middle part of the hike, poison oak has over grown the trail and some contact with the plants is inevitable...suggest long pants. Great spot to stop for lunch in the middle of the hike at Bob Creek.

My tracks were from Tioga Trail Bridge (about in the middle of the Tioga Segment) west for 1.6 miles. Short bike ride on a hot day. Turns out this section is an old roadbed - wide & easy. It'd be great for families or total dirt newbies. Despite going west, you actually are climbing the whole ride - gently. We turned around where the roadbed ends and a steep downhill of switchbacks start. Neither this source nor the FS/BLM maps tell that this section can be cut in half (more or less) by this trailbridge.

Very pretty, even with the fire that burnt through a section. There is a sign that says closed but pay no mind to it the trail and bridges are in great shape. I came here to mountain bike and there were white a few hills but still so much fun!

The Tioga segment can be broken into two point-to-point hikes. The Swiftwater to Susan Creek bridge (7.7 mi) is currently closed due to damage caused by the Cable Crossing fire in early August. The Susan Creek to Wright Creek portion (8 mi) is in great shape and is 98% shaded by cedar, madrone, big leaf maple, and old growth Doug fir. Enjoy the beautiful walking/bike only bridge at Susan Creek, installed in 2012, that offers access to the N. Umpqua trail over the river.

Unbelievably beautiful. The watery Eden of Oregon. Green, lush, naturalist's dream. I didn't get nearly far enough up the trail, but my mom lives in Glide, so I'm going to make a New Year's resolution to finish the segment. Still, if you're in Oregon - and might be interested in the Steelhead of the North Umpqua, you've got to hike back up here. The moss and ferns make me want to throw myself on the ground and roll around in it. Okay, that sounds weird, but you know what I mean.
