This is a long, exposed hike that begins as an easy, undistinguished jaunt in California chaparral country, not the terrain you expect in a national forest. Having said that, any time you get the opportunity to be in wilder open space with your dog off leash within easy access from busy highways and urban areas, it is a treat. Except for the burned- out area from the Whiskey Fire of 2008, the trail to the top of the gorge is relatively pleasant; you pass a couple of seasonal streams and spring blooms of Indian paintbrush and white fiddleneck while catching distant views of Mounts Lassen and Shasta. The last steep mile, dropping down into the wide gorge to Thomes Creek, is the scenic payoff, and the boulder- strewn rushing waters are an amazing contrast to the dry landscape above.
