Primitive and not maintained, the seven creek crossings are not possible/advisable during the Spring or after heavy rainfall.

The steepness of the trail makes riding south from Access 1 to Access 2 easier, as a shuttle or returning on the FR. Vegetation is lush along the creek. Old-growth Douglas-fir, sugar pine, and incense-cedar are found here along with dogwood, hazel, big-leaf maple, and vine maple.

Directions: See Map. SR62 to the Elk Creek road. Go right and continue 13mi to FR6620, then go left and continue 1.5mi to the junction with road 6620-050. View Larger Map. No Map?.
