“A rugged trail with lots of undulation, dropping into and out of four ravines.”
— Brock B-Rock
S. Willamette sees much lower traffic than the other trails in the Patterson Mt drainage. Probably due to the ruggedness and steepness combined with it "going nowhere" unless you're using it to combine with Hardesty Trail #3469
or Lawler Trail #3473
The west end is used most by equestrians. The east end (between Eula junction and Crale Creek Road) is used mostly by foot traffic, though some bike traffic can also be present.
