"A short, botanically diverse and very pretty loop along a creek, passing forest, rock outcrops, dry grassy areas, and an exquisite (if small) waterfall. One online resource inexplicably rates this trail as “moderate to strenuous.” Actually it’s a great place to introduce small children to hiking. Dogs are OK, but no bikes. Watch out for poison oak. This is one of Grants Pass Parks and Recreation’s favorite places to send families who seek a short, scenic, child-friendly hike that’s close to town. This lovely little loop is easy, pleasant, and informative—and doesn’t take too long. There are numerous benches and interpretive signs along the way. Because of the diversity of botanical ecosystems, there are supposedly 250 different plant species to be seen along the trail (although they don’t all bloom at the same time)." Read more

An easy hike through a beautiful rain forest. The water flow is low, but the fall colors and the moist atmosphere give it a mystical look.
