Description

From the Deming Creek Trailhead, this trail (also known as Boulder Springs Trail #101) follows Deming Creek to the Gearhart Mountain Wilderness and extends to the Gearhart Mountain Trail #100. This trail was built in 1999 after the road was decommissioned to protect the Bull Trout habitat.

The trail climbs within hearing distance of Deming Creek from the Deming Creek Trailhead to the old Boulder Springs Trailhead (wilderness boundary). There is an old kiosk at the wilderness boundary. This trail does not get a lot of use, but the downhill back to the Deming Creek trailhead is a blast.

When we rode it in early June 2017, most of the blow down had been cleared; however, we did encounter 3-4 blow downs and a few short patches of snow. If you hike it in the spring, keep an eye out for morels along the trail. The climb is mostly gradual within some short steep sections. There are a few rocky sections too.

The down is fun and rolling with some small but playful natural features.
