Trail Overview

Great viewing points of the N. Umpqua River and the area of Thunder Mountain. There are lots of opportunities for mudding and enjoying a nice day on the mountain. It is a great trail for getting from Lil River Side to Rock Creek side in an SxS or 4Wheeler. Come prepared with food, drink, water, and gas.

Difficulty

MAYBE SLICK IN SOME SPOTS IN THE WET SEASON. OTHER THAN THAT VERY EASY ROAD TO TAKE BETWEEN PEEL OR TO SWIFTWATER TRAIL HEAD. GREAT ROAD TO TAKE THE WHOLE FAMILY.

Very cool area to see the aftermath of burned downed area but unfortunately it was closed around the 3.7 mile mark due to work being done on excavators.

Washout
Fun easy for 4x4 trail roads with units for stopping with dogs. Can't get through the road due to landslide/washout was by myself and in my stock compass trailhawk but a more prepared vehicle could probably make it around by going off to the right and fording the small creek at your discretion to your vehicle.

Access Description

The trailhead is at the Peel Store and at Swiftwater Park on Highway 138.
