“A densely populated trail of both flora and fauna alike.”— Justin S.
Massive ferns cover the forest floor, and moss hangs from the 400-year-old trees. The path is well-maintained along the ridge but just past mile 2, the trail turns downhill where it begins a steep, switchback descent toward Drift Creek. Towards the end of the creek feel free to go fishing for salmon or trout before heading back along the path. The trail leads into Horse Lake Trail (continuation of Horse Creek).
