Brice Creek Trail
June 30, 1990
Our group met at the S.E.H.S. parking lot and although 9 signed up for the trip only 6 showed up,
and adding the leader, our group numbered 7.
We left at 8:00 a.m. and reached our destination, west trailhead of Brice Creek, approximately
41 miles from Eugene.
This trip was publicized as a 5-mile hike but with the approval of the hikers it became an 8-mile hike.
From the trailhead, we proceeded to Cedar Creek Campground (1½ miles) then on to Lund Park
The Brice Creek trail traverses a scenic, rocky creek with numerous small waterfalls and pools
along the creek.
The old growth forests, stream-side trail and a few open segments along cliffs provide a variety
of environments to explore.
History: The Brice Creek Trails follows the old Frank Bryce Trail which provided access to
the Bohemia Mining District in the early 1900’s.
Although some of the original tread was followed, most of the current tread and blasting for trail
access was done in 1988 for your recreational use.
Lund Park, named for Alex Lundberg and Harry Parker, was an overnight stop for the tired but
industrious miners on their two-day trip from Cottage Grove to Bohemia Saddle.
Even though the rampant gold fever of the 1800’s and early 1900’s has passed, many
industrious men and women still search for gold.
It was a beautiful day, beautiful scenery and my group (Rick Rickford, Gladys Grancorvitz,
Corrine Hunt, Miki Hutchinson, Helen Lynch and Beverly Soule) was the best.
