This forgotten trail suffers from neglect in the form of disuse. Too many hikers ignored the short trail up the canyon wall above the Lewis River, and the land managers have taken notice, it seems. The path provides a pleasant walk in the woods, but it is getting rough and brushy. It would be great to see these small remnant trails restored for day hikers to enjoy. In the meantime, it’s rough but still enjoyable as a place to explore the recuperative power of nature. The forest is young and regrowing, and the wildlife is flocking back.
