“A great trail in the coastal forest right off Hwy 101.”— Peter Carse
The trail is smooth and wide for the first 1.3 miles as it ascends gradually to a junction where the Cummins Creek Loop Trail comes in on the left. Keeping to the right, the trail continues on a similar grade along the old road bed, but becomes much narrower for another mile and a half.
At this point, 2.8 miles and 675' above the trailhead, the trail abruptly begins climbing at a much steeper and rougher grade, gaining 500' in the next half mile, before reaching the upper junction with the Cummins Creek Loop trail.
The Cummins Creek Trail continues uphill, passing a short spur on the right leading to a viewpoint, before descending slightly to the Cummins Peak Road.
