Trail shared by Bruce Buckley

This is a short trail branching off of Bill's Trail.

This has been hidden from our maps to prevent overlap with existing trails, or because our research has found there is no legal access.

Features -none-

Bill's Trail and therefore Stairstep Falls Trail has been closed for improvements since August 2014.

Description

Nice easy trail through dense forest of mostly fir and bay with a lot of sword ferns carpeting the steep hillside. There is a viewing area at the end of the trail with a bench for contemplating. This area is very dry in the summer so the falls won't be running. Good winter hike.
