We had a variety of weather conditions on our hike. A few sprinkles, a little sleet, some sun , and snow when we got back to the cars. But mostly cloudy and with enough climbing on this up and down hike to keep us warm. No grand vistas. This is not a destination hike but it's just another wonderful walk in the woods. Peaceful and without crowds. (but with signs of partying when the trail intersected a couple of logging roads). This trail is part of the unfinished Eugene to Crest system and it was fun to explore this lightly used section.
The precious day's high winds had knocked down a lot of limbs which we tossed or kicked off the trail. Only a couple of smaller trees down, which were easily stepped over.Members: David Cooper, Tommy Young, Marguerite Cooney, David Lodeesen, Ben Brown, Jack Loe, Mike Smith.
