“A great trail in southern Oregon that follows a creek.”— Nick McDaniel
At 10.3 miles this would make a long out-and-back run to do in a day; either consider camping or have a shuttle arranged.
From the trailhead, the northern portion of trail drops into the Taylor Creek drainage and starts out smooth and fairly level. Once you have reached the main stem of Taylor Creek the trail traverses the steep hill side with a few steep climbs and descents, and a few creek crossings. The trail surface is mainly smooth dirt with a few rock screes and roots to break it up. The creek provides some great pools to cool off in the hot summer heat.
There are a few trails that intersect the trail, so watch the junctions and make sure you're staying straight on Taylor Creek Trail.
