8.96 miles of hiking • 2250' elevation gain •
I have not hiked this one in sometime and forgot how cool the first couple miles are. One hikes up a steep mossy valley with old growth Douglas Firs clinging to the rocky cliffs, with a roaring creek and a water fall thrown in for good measure. I frequently find it amazing the places where trees can grow. Hiked a bit past the 2nd view point.
