This technical singletrack route passes through a magnificent old-growth forest next to mossy Larison Creek in the Willamette National Forest. Bridgeless creek crossings. Have a day filled with adventure on this old-growth trail that sweeps up Larison Creek canyon. Mossy-coated logs, trees, and rocks create a glistening green canvas, and the soothing sounds of the creek make you want the trail to never end. This trail will challenge you with its many sections of roots, rocks, and creek crossings. Also beware of mountain bikers, who love the challenge of riding this technical trail.

This was a pleasant trail, with a beautiful view of Larison Cove at some parts of the path. The old growth forest surrounding much of the trail is beautifully covered in moss. There is a gradual elevation gain overall, although you go up and down somewhat for most of the trail. One downfall was the cloudy water in the creek and all the streams leading into it.
