Getting There

This is an exhilarating hike, but you do need to be in good shape to conquer the climb. Reaching the top of the Triumph Trail is a triumph in itself, since it goes up the side of the mountain over rocky and steep terrain. A half mile up the trail, there is a connection across a bridge to the Davis Creek Trail. Instead of crossing the bridge, go north up the hill. You will find a bench where you can sit a minute and catch your breath. The next part of the trail continues east up the canyon and gives you a good view of Indian Annie Rock. She is facing east just above the first waterfall. A short distance farther is a trail spur down to the creek where you will find Indian Cave. White settlers have often used this small camping spot next to a little waterfall, but Native Americans most likely used it first. About a half mile up the trail, look for Chameleon Rock. It changes from a bull dog to a house cat as you pass it then to a sad-eyed koala bear as you leave it behind. About two-thirds of the way up the ridge, you will pass Lightning Strike Tree, a tall pine tree sporting a long vertical stripe of pitch where a lightning bolt surged to the ground. The top of this trail is halfway up the mountain where the trail joins the Old North Trail at Midway Peak.

There is parking available by the reservoir just north of Davis Canyon. Park, then walk up the road. The trailhead is just before you would cross the creek. Access #2 - Midway Peak Junction: Reach the top of the trail by going halfway up the Old North Trail (#32). The Triumph Trail connects at Midway Peak and goes down the mountain ridge.

If you want to feel like an explorer this trail is for you. Otherwise it’s virtually impossible to follow and you will get off route. Take a gps or go with someone who knows the trail. AllTrails has it at 3.4 miles but that must be one way, I was about 2.5 before having to turn around because of time constraints.

Highly don't recommend, unless you like extremely steep bushwacks. I don't really see the point in continuing past the waterfall.

Did Triumph up (by accident) and Davis creek loop down. Triumph was brutal, semi dangerous and gorgeous views, it pushed me and I loved it. Hard difficulty steep pitch, loose shale, nothing to hold on to. Definitely need hiking boots, walking sticks and maybe rescue gear and first aid for Triumph trail. It’s a swift gain in elevation. Waterfall and creek were awesome at the flat ridge of Triumph. I didn’t continue up. Kinda took a not well traveled path to cross the creek to Davis loop.
