A wonderful short hike through the old growth of MacDonald Forest You'll start a steep descent, but not long to "floor" then similar hike back up to the road. You'll see towering old growth trees and lush under growth. Once back on the road, go right on the gravel road and take time to look at the old quarry on your way back to your car. This hike will be muddy in the winter.

We should have read the reviews first since we missed the actual old growth trail and ended up doing a much longer hike. The trail, road width, is covered in rock and was still very pretty and peaceful! It gradually goes up hill but was an easy hike.

Both old growth trails are great (West or East sides of the road). Very beautiful forest and the trails are even decent when it's raining.
