Trail shared by Nora Velp

A short, old, and overgrown logging road turned singletrack with rhododendron tunnels and a creek crossing.

Description

A side trail that can be done in either direction to bypass the forest road. Starting further out on Harriet Cove Road (FS Road 5011), it starts out downhill along an open logging road cut then quickly becomes singletrack.

At the T-junction, turn right and continue descending to a creek which requires a dismount to cross. At the next junction, keep right through the rhododendron tunnel and gently climb back to Harriet Cove Road (FS Road 5011).
