“A stunning riverfront trail with awesome views and easy terrain.”— Tom Robson
Find several campsites along the trail as well as junctions with other marked trails such as Rock Creek Trail #1013.1 and Dingford Creek Trail #1005 which both access Alpine Lakes Wilderness.
At 0.75 mile, the trail turns away from the river and passes beneath a prominent knob known by locals as Stegosaurus Butte. Further along, the trail follows an old logging railroad grade that was used by the North Bend Timber Company. Around the three mile mark, the trail descends back to the river level.
At milepost 5.8 a bridge across the river takes runners to the Dutch Miller Gap Trail via the Dingford Cutoff trail which ends across from Dingford Creek Trail #1005. At milepost 8.5 the trail intersects with Rock Creek Trail #1013 as it heads to Snow Lake. A pleasant detour to the Goldmyer Hot Springs can be taken around mile 11.0 (private fee to access). Otherwise continue to the end near the Dutch Miller Trail.
