This figure-eight loop hike is an excellent one for small children with adult supervision. The four-foot-wide gravel tread heads east from the parking area through dense second-growth forest. Fir, bigleaf maple, and red cedar trees furnish the canopy. Beneath these big, moss-hung trees grows vine maple. Ferns and moss cover the ground. Soon after leaving the trailhead you will want to stop and read the first interpretive sign about deer tracks, some of which you may have already seen along the trail. Foxglove and blackberries line the creek, as do nettles. The Old Growth Loop climbs gently making a couple of switchbacks as it enters the larger trees of the old growth forest.
