“A diverse trail that follows Harper Creek past massive waterfalls and multiple creek crossings.”

This trail can be broken down into three parts. First, you have the most popular section of the trail as it leads to the epic Harper Creek Falls. Once past this waterfall, the trail continues along the banks of the creek and is a part of the Mountains to Sea Trail. After a couple miles or so, the trail leaves the MST and crosses Harper Creek. This begins the second section of the trail.
This section can be very difficult to follow. The trail gets overgrown and blazes are sparse. The trail crosses the creek multiple times as well. Near the end of this section, it begins to climb up past South Harper Falls before ending at junction with Raider Camp Trail
. From here, the last section of the trail leaves the banks of Harper Creek and follows a mellow path to Kawana Road and its end.
