Description

From its junction with the Pacific Crest Trail, the Tolo Creek Trail #1466 descends a ridge for 0.6 miles to a junction with the Tenas Peak Trail #1445 and the Tenas Peak Connector Trail. Here the #1466 turns sharply to the southeast and enters the Mount Thielsen Wilderness. It then descends gently through stands of lodgepole pine and true fir to the headwaters of Tolo Creek, where it makes a sharp turn to the west. There is an informal campsite (Lil Indian Camp) just east of this turn. You may have occasional views of Lemolo Lake, Mount Bailey, and Tenas Peak along this section of trail.

After this sharp turn, the #1466 continues on down the Tolo Creek drainage for 3.5 miles to end at its junction with the North Umpqua Trail #1414. The creek becomes more and more prominent and water-filled as you descend. There is a large informal campsite (Dutch Oven Camp) at this junction, with easy access to Tolo Creek.
