Description

This trail basically serves as a connector between Forest Road 2730-200 and Badger Creek. There are some views of Mount Hood from along this trail. From road access at Forest Road 2730-200 (the Flag Point Road), the #477 descends 3.2 miles to its end at Badger Creek Trail #479. From here, you can run the Badger Creek Trail #479 northwest to Badger Lake or descend southeast towards Post Camp Trail #467. The #477 can also be used with the Divide Trail #458 to form loop trips over Lookout Mountain.

Note that this trail no longer follows the alignment below Tolo Creek shown on the USGS and USFS maps.
