Taylor Mountain represents an experiment in forest management. Over the decades, loggers took what they could from the 1700-acre forest, leaving behind a mess of scrub brush and second- (and third-) growth trees. But that young forest has filled in nicely and nature is once more proving that, given the chance, it can recover on its own.

Holder Creek trail in the Taylor Mountain Forest is washed out at approximately .7 miles. It can be regained by walking up the creek shoreline about 100 feet, but it encounters a major washout a couple hundred yards further on. At the second washout, a forest scramble around the washout is flagged, but soon the path and flagging disappears without returning to the continuation of the trail. Found an old logging road going in the right direction at the top of the bluff to the west of the creek, but overgrown, numerous windfalls, not worth the effort.
