Trail shared by Shane Hendrickson

A fairly easy part of the trail. There are lots of roots and rocks, so be careful.

Description

This is an easy part of the trail to hike. It is steep at the start (near the houses) and continually builds but at an easier incline towards 256 Street. There are a few twists and turns. Make sure you watch for roots and rocks. The last km is pretty easy with a slight downhill towards 256. Make sure you have a bear bell in bear season. I've personally seen bears up on this trail. They are mainly black bears so you shouldn't get in trouble if you're smart (don't try to get close no matter how cute their cubs are!!!) As stated it ends at 256th Street and it's just a short (but steep) uphill to connect to George's Way Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of greenery all year round. Northwest rainforest type vegetation all around.
