This former road makes a nice connection between Hurricane Ridge area and Whiskey Bend Trailhead.

Dogs: No Dogs

Description

Although most people hike in from either end and turn around at some point, the entire length of this trail is lovely. Because this was a road once, the grade is consistent and gentle for the most part.

Starting from the Hurricane Ridge Road, head west through open meadows passing clumps of trees. Begin the descent by switchbacking crazily down into a valley. The forest becomes much denser and the trail twists and turns. Soon, the path approaches Wolf Creek and plunges down a ridgeline. Near the trail's end, leave Wolf Creek and cross a ridge into the Elwah River Valley. Contour down one final hillside to arrive at the Whiskey Bend Trailhead. Retrace your steps to return.

Flora & Fauna

Deer, marmot, grouse, junco, slugs. Starflower, lilies, penstamon, larkspur, sedum, paintbrush, etc. Cedar, madrones, salal.
