This all-day strenuous hike is a collaboration between Cascadia Wildlands and Our Forests that will take you into one of the most primeval places left in Oregon. This hike doesn’t go to the Devil’s Staircase waterfall, but instead we will see a portion of one of the most extensive remaining old-growth forests remaining in the Coast Range. Part of our route involves a rugged elk trail, and the remainder of the hike is totally off trail. Participants should be able to navigate steep unstable terrain, brush and log obstacles. Come prepared with “rubber-palmed” gloves, warm clothes, good rain gear and stout boots (no sandals!).
