Trail Overview

This beautiful route takes you into the Douglas Creek Canyon and past the falls. Traveling from south to north, the main route has a challenging descent into a trough. However, there are bypasses available if needed. Traveling from north to south, the trough may be impassible to less capable high clearance vehicles. There are many miles of spur trails to explore. Be sure to take advantage of the scenic falls for lunch. Dispersed camping is available along the way. There is no cell reception. The trail is mostly packed dirt, however, in the wet season, it is all mud. There are multiple creek crossings roughly 1-1.5' deep in early spring.


Overall the route is a technical rating of 4, with some section that can be bypassed rated 6 or higher due to deep trough decent/ascent and potential for deep creek crossings during the wet season.
