Excellent trail with plenty of views. There are some inclines and a stream. Plenty of spots to stop and camp as well!

Started off on bear rocks...beautiful views of the rolling plains heading towards raven ridge...trail was a little rocky but very well identified and easy to follow...raven ridge quickly turned to spruce and mountain laurel thickets that opened up into more rolling plains towards dobbin grade...dobbin grade was nasty and boggy as usual...ended the hike back at the forest road, via beaver dam trail which was easy walking and slightly uphill...overall this hike was great because of all of the scenery changes...a lot of nice places to camp along the way as well.

Hiked the bear rocks trail and camped near Red Creek. An excellent place to spend the night, nestled among moss-covered boulders on a bed of pine needles from the coniferous canopy overhead, listening to the ever-present gurgle of red creek. Nice!

Fun trail but really muddy right now with all the rain this year!

Incredible views. Muddy bogs in low area of Dobbin Grade. Also recommend continuing Raven Ridge to Rocky Ridge trail. Enjoyed wild blue berries too.

Sweet trail. Can get crowded in peak season. Get low if thunder rolls in.

it was a great place. i helped a dude with a hurt foot up a ravine to where his wife was standing by to get him to a hospital.

no but seriously, plan your approach. my gps took me to a three mile stretch of a road that came straight out of a b-rated horror movie.

submitted a couple photos of the road listed.

Great hiking and encountered very few people on the trail. Soggy in places, but fortunately most was frozen when we went through. Two river crossings-- first we were able to use rocks to cross, current was quick. second crossing was about a foot deep with no bridge or rocks.
