Beautiful hike on a bark dust / logging road around the Trappist Abbey. This is an easy hike to do, as the path is broad and easy to follow, though there are some nice hills that will get your heart going at the start. The route starts off on a bark dust trail which takes you up through a picturesque oak savannah and into a beautiful Douglas Fir plantation. There are multiple branches of smaller trails from the main road, or you can stay on the main path and follow it as it becomes a logging road that loops around again to the abbey. An easy all-season hike that offers beautiful views of the surrounding valley.

fun little quick trail, first part is a bit exhausting as it's all uphill, but after that it leads way into the Forrest with ferns and moss covered trees. fantastic!

Beautiful trail, but we only made it to the logging road. Because it has been so dry, the logging road has a thick layer of very fine dirt that rises up and gets in your shoes. Wear appropriate high-top shoes that you don't mind getting dusty.

it was a nice hike but the trails are poorly marked. also, the gravel rocks on the main trail were really hard to walk on. some were almost golf ball size that hurt my feet going downhill.
