Description

From the Corral Pass Trailhead, the trail moves into the trees along a mellow, winding singletrack and the occasional road-trace. A steep climb on the other side of a small saddle is a nice spot to enjoy the surrounding landscape. Just ahead, a notable bend in the trail serves up great views on clear days.

A little more climbing brings the Deep Creek Trail intersection into sight. From there, the narrow trail continues to a short ridgeline descent that meets up with the intersection of the Dalles Ridge Trail and the nearby Noble Knob Summit Spur.

Continuing on, the trail drops to the left and circles around the knob to the George Lake Trail intersection. Proceed along the ridge line where a steep descent leads back into the trees for the next few miles. A series of old logging roads are crossed before the trail ends near Road 7222-410.

Flora & Fauna

Deer, elk, and other wildlife can occasionally be glimpsed and wildflowers dot the landscape.
