We should have read the reviews before trying the trail. We made it about 2.5 miles before giving up and turning back. We took the trail on the north side of the river, but it was still pretty bad. Many fallen trees. It's easy to lose the trail with all the overgrowth. There are many other options in this area that are better.

The Rogue Siskiyou forest is about to swallow this seriously overgrown trail. If you attempt it, use the trail on the north side of the creek. The south side trail head, while still marked, peters out quickly and runs by a fallen and partially concealed barbed wire fence that’s a bit dangerous. Avoid in favor of the many other excellent trails in the area.

Bruce is right. About a mile in the trail gets too closed in for comfortable (safe) travel. This portion needs clearance maintenance for any good use. I turned around after 10 minutes of pushing through brush and continued on the opposite side of the river along 1034a. It too closing in for about 10-15 minutes, but it was t nearly as bad.

Beautiful scenery, but totally neglected trail. 6 of us hiked the entire trail with lots of laughs as we crawled over and under humongous logs! (and a few naughty words). Needs big time help.

Lovely creek side walk but overgrown and hard to find trail at about 2.8 miles up from Hwy 62. Needs a trail crew to give TLC.

First to Review

This is a long moderate hike over some rough terrain. The path doesn't quite follow along the river and there are dense logs, trees and rocks blocking access to the river throughout most of the trail, which makes it difficult to see the falls along the way. At the end of the trail you can either turn around and go back the way you came or loop around to the gravel road on the left and follow it to Hwy 62 and walk to hwy 230 going left and you will come to the Gorge and then back to Union Creek area.
