This is a pretty good hike. The first several miles are flat, but they are also in a part of the forest recovering from a forest fire from several years ago. We took the trail until it crossed the river. The river was running too high that year to cross.

There is a parking lot at the trailhead right off of the highway. Probably not much more than a 1/4 mile down the highway from the Pahaska Teepee store.
