We went on May 14. We loved it. Everything was so green with displays of wildflowers. The creek was obviously full with mountain runoff. Very peaceful. We only met one other couple. The disappointing thing was that we couldn't go farther due to the time factor. We hiked in about 3 miles. Next time I'd like to backpack in and do the whole trail. I think the trail is at its peak beauty now because I'm sure it's pretty dry in summer there.

DISCOVERY PASS REQUIRED. We did not know this upon approaching the trailhead, and we got a "violation" notice for not adequately displaying our Discovery Pass. (We are Idaho residents, and we didn't know where to buy a pass on Easter Sunday.) Other than that, we really enjoyed this hike. We did 15 of the 20 miles, which was already more than we could handle. At mile 4, you enter the Umatilla National Forest. At mile 6 or 7, you climb up the edge of the canyon and get great views of the canyon. Fairly flat trail, and we only noted 1-2 other groups of people on a Sunday (low traffic).

The North Fork Asotin Creek Trail is a 10 mile long out and back. With two side trails, N. Pinkham Trail at 7 miles and S. Pinkham Trail at 10 miles. The TH and parking is 25 miles from Asotin WA on Asotin Creek Rd. then left on Lick Creek Rd. Discovery Pass required.
The trail is not difficult, only 2000 ft. elevation gain over the ten miles. In the early spring a few trees may be down across the trail, but are normally easy to get around. In July and August be on the lookout for rattlesnakes This trail follows the creek and is well worth the drive up.
