Trail Overview

This is a short but scenic out-and-back trail into the edge of the Olympic Range, ending just outside the Buckhorn Wilderness area. Drop from the main road on a steep, slick, rutted path, winding sharply down the canyon wall to a bridge across the Gray Wolf River. The lower portion of the trail follows the rushing river, passing several campsites before climbing up Three O'Clock Ridge to picturesque views of Mount Deception rising in the distance. Winter will see you into deep snowpack beyond this point; air down and continue to meet up with the Upper Dungeness Fork at another patch of pristine rapids. The road continues further to the Tubal Cain trailhead, but dead-ends into the Buckhorn Wilderness shortly after.

Difficulty

The initial descent is deeply rutted with some off-camber sections. The latter sections are evenly graded but badly potholed. Winter snow increases the difficulty.
