This trail is in the Mark O. Hatfield Wilderness and the usual federal wilderness area regulations and restrictions apply here. Practice Leave No Trace (LNT) backcountry skills and ethics. Camp 100 feet from fragile areas; bury human waste at least 200 feet from water, trails, and campsites. This trail is usually snowed in between November and May.

Description

This trail is the most direct and most strenuous way to reach Nick Eaton Ridge from Herman Creek. In the other direction, it is a knee-thumping way to descend from the ridge to the creek. It's useful for allowing a shorter, but more demanding, loop between Nick Eaton and Herman Creek.

From the #406 at 1,600 feet, the #476 climbs through some short switchbacks to the toe of the ridge at about 2,800 feet between Casey and Camp Creeks.

Once on the ridge, the #476 continues to climb steeply for 0.8 miles to its end at the Nick Eaton Trail #447.
