From the fork, the trail descends steadily, switching back and forth as it makes its way to Bryant Ravine. At 1.1 miles, you cross Frey Creek over a wooden bridge. The forest opens up a little bit after that and offers you a few views of Bald Rock Dome through the leaves.
At 2.5 miles, the trail will start ascending again. Feather Falls Scenic Trail - Upper Route
