Trail Overview

A short trail that takes you to an awesome camp spot near a small waterfall and creek. Old-growth type forest lines the trail and the last section to the camp spot is lined with ferns. Decent spot for a few vehicles and is very secluded. Beautiful all year and even better in the snow. The trail is an easy fire road but crosses over a little rut and climbs a bit into the campsite.

Difficulty

Trail is a fire road for 95 percent but then you turn onto a tight trail that begins with a rut and you need to clip up a little to the camp spot. Does get very muddy when it rains and there is snow in the winter but not very deep.
