Larison Creek Trail

May 14, 1989

Wildflowers lined the moderately rolling trail. The sun shone. Our packs were light. The creek burbled on its way to Hills Creek Reservoir. A few newly opened rhododendrons welcomed us to spring among the old growth firs and cedars. We frightened several small snakes as we walked at a steady pace through the deep woods, across some small creeks, to a rocky clearing where we ate our lunches. Just around the bend from our lunch stop, we had to turn back because of a sign posted “Trail Closed — Logging.” A beautiful clump of blooming bear grass marks the trail’s end. The trail used to continue for about another mile. On our return, a few drops of drizzle fell and then gave way to sunshine again. We picked up some trash left near the start of the trail by a previous camping group, the Fort Umpqua Musket Loaders. The trail has recently been maintained. Hikers were Marcia Danab, Barb Elsen, Marty Hathaway, Ed Lichtenstein & Susan Baker (leader).
