Brice Creek

April 29, 2006

On an absolutely perfect spring day, 14 hikers met at SEHS parking lot to set out for Brice Creek, which is east of Cottage Grove. We picked up a hiker at the Wal-Mart Cottage Grove store and then traveled on to the starting point. As we were going to do a car shuttle, one car was left at the take out point and three cars were left at the Upper Trestle Creek Falls parking area. The first part of the hike is the steepest part, but we were rewarded for our efforts with a lovely view of Upper Trestle Creek Falls. Fortunately we did not get wet as we walked behind the thundering waterfall. We stopped for a lunch break beside the creek on a rock outcropping. Some of the group took a short side trip to another waterfall, while others stayed behind to enjoy the sunshine and the rushing water. Regrouping after our lunch break, we set off down the trail, enjoying Calypso Orchids, Fawn Lilies, and the last of the Trilliums as we hiked. My sense of distance proved to be off on a couple of occasions, but fortunately the hikers were very forgiving and we all made it to the take out point, tired but still enjoying a good hike on a gorgeous day.
