Description

This is a lightly used trail that runs through the southeastern portion of the Badger Creek Wilderness. It provides access to several backpacking and running loop options within the wilderness.

The Tygh Creek Trail #460 climbs gradually but steadily through some old growth Pondarosa pine and oak groves and past some nice rock outcroppings to end at Forest Road 2730-200 (Flag Point Road), 0.6 miles northwest of the Flag Point Lookout. Here you can make connections with the Divide Trail #458, the Little Badger Trail #469, and the Badger Creek Cutoff Trail #477.

From FR 27, the Tygh Creek Trail #460 heads northwest following Tygh Creek for 0.4 mile, then starts climbing north, away from the creek. At 1.3 miles from FR 27, it passes Pen Point to the north, then climbs a steeper grade to the junction with Jordan Cutoff Trail #462 (4,320’) at 3.4 miles in. Stay left (west) here and continue west for 3.2 miles – past a junction with the Tygh Creek Way Trail #460A at 5.1 miles - to the end of the Tygh Creek Trail #460 at its junction with the Divide Trail #458 and Forest Road 2730-200.
