Description

This trail starts at the University Falls Trailhead. It begins with a steep and technical climb, crosses OHV trails a few times, and then descends steeply to University Falls.

Be sure to always take a moment to hike down to the falls. It's a very short connector. University Falls is a very nice waterfall and a nice touch of scenery to this dense forest hike.

Afterwards the trail begins a lengthy, rugged descent to the lowest elevations of the whole Browns Camp Loop. There are a few very mellow climbs sprinkled in, but it's mostly downhill. Expect lots of root clusters and some rocky sections.

The trail crosses several streams and follows some bench-cut trail. Recent logging has opened up a section of forest that the trail runs through, so be mindful in the hottest days of summer. Don't worry though, it is brief. Eventually the trail crosses a wide stream with a nice bridge. Take a moment to stop and try to spot some trout in the clear water.

Shortly after the creek, the trail junctions with the Storey Burn Trail, which heads west under Highway 6. Keep uphill and to the right for the gradual climb up to a decommissioned gravel road. The gravel road crosses the Elliott Creek OHV Trail just before an ODOT gravel station, which the trail circles around behind concrete barriers. This marks the end of the Browns Camp Loop.

After hiking behind the concrete barriers, you'll arrive at the junction of Beaver Dam Road Highway 6. Climbing up the fire road and taking a left will take you to the Rogers Camp Trailhead. Crossing the highway leads to a very large pull-over parking lot and the Summit Trailhead. The Gales Creek Summit Trail will take you back to the Gales Creek Trailhead.
