Cummins Creek Loop Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Overhung with mossy bigleaf maple and bordered by giant Sitka spruce, Cummins Creek and Bob Creek represent two of the few undisturbed coastal drainages protected by wilderness designation. Both are V-shaped, water-eroded valleys with steep slopes. Located just south of Cape Perpetua, Cummins Creek Wilderness protects relict stands of old-growth coastal rain forest (though there are some revegetated clear-cuts in the area). The highest peaks that surround the creek basins include 2,470-foot Cummins Peak. The wilderness was designated in 1984 by the Oregon Wilderness Act. Like the nearby Rock Creek Wilderness, the boundaries of this wilderness are largely defined by roads, with FR 5694 on Ten Mile Ridge forming the southern border and FR 55 on Cape Ridge marking the northern border."
