There are two creek crossing, first is stepping stones, second is a bridge. Bathroom at Fernwood trailhead.

Description

Head north from the top of The switchbacks Adams Canyon, this is mostly rollers with some rocks on corners and about 0.4 miles in is a steep small section. There's a creek crossing about 0.8 miles along. This is the stone crossing and it has a bit of a climb out with continued rollers until mile 1.5 where there is a bridge to cross the creek and then a downhill section into the Fernwood trailhead.
