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.

Coming from the south, Trail was gravel to the top of the hill, then a small maze of intersecting offshoots all with steep declines, 4L is your friend, once at the bottom nothing else technical, lots of 1.5-2' deep water crossings leaving north. then TONS of dust on the road between fields.

Washboard
Primarily compact dirt roads with occasional washouts. At the trailhead, two paths converge, both washed out. To the right of the four different trails, two steep options await; descending is manageable, but ascending is challenging. Overall, an enjoyable trail featuring a scenic creek and entertaining water crossings.
