This is a logging road that is publicly accessible to hikers. Great views and very, very little traffic. The first track shared on this trail goes to a great view point for the Twin Sisters. Remember that if the gate is OPEN the trail is closed for hikers. It means they are actively using the road. This is a logging road so if you are looking for a trail that has you surrounded by old growth and seeing areas that have been logged off will ruin the experience then this is not the hike for you. But if you are looking for a good quiet hike that will give you a view of the Twin Sisters that you have never seen before then check it out. About 3 miles in is a cleared area that if there are no clouds should give you one hell of a view of the Sisters. Lots of side trails and other roads to check out, including one that ends up all the way at the top of blue mountain at about 2450 feet. If you hike this in the fall look down from the bridge and see if the salmon are spawning. Sometimes they are pretty thick in that creek.

Not that interesting just view of Twin Sisters mountains and cut down trees. Lots of better hikes out there. Not many people is one benefit.

Could easily hike here for a day if you had the time. Cross the barricade only if it's closed off. If it's open its an active logging road. Bring extra water especially in the summer, very little shade. Otherwise decent day hike. Good view of the twin sisters

Very quiet logging road. Saw what Im pretty sure were pheasants. At the end of the track 3 miles in are some great views.
