“A moderate forest road that transitions to singletrack.”— Karl W
After crossing the Wildwood Trail, the trail will begin to descend much more steeply for another 0.75 miles. This section follows a ridge before turning to descend to a creek. At the creek crossing the forest road part of the trail ends, from thereafter the trail becomes singletrack. The singletrack section can be slightly overgrown with raspberries and other plants. The trail follows the creek for about a quarter of a mile before closing with NW St Helens Road (30) and joining the BPA Road Trail.
This trail is best used for making various loops with the Wildwood Trail and especially the BPA Road Trail. If doing the latter, I'd recommend going down the BPA Road and ascending Newton Road as BPA offers lovely views to the northeast of the three main Cascade volcanoes (the direction of the descent) while Newton has more shade and better trail grip for climbing.
