Cummins Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Cummins Creek Wilderness, adjacent to Cape Perpetua Scenic Area, and Rock Creek Wilderness a few miles south were created to preserve some of the last major virgin stands of Sitka spruce, western hemlock, and Douglas fir in the coastal forest. The only trail through Cummins Creek Wilderness is Cummins Ridge Trail, a 6.2-mile route whose lower 3.5 miles originated as a logging road in 1968. Some 2.7 miles of footpath were added to the upper end of the old road to stretch the trail all the way to the edge of the wilderness.

Though it’s a rather long drive to the upper trailhead, the upper few miles are the most appealing part of the trail, where it winds through the old growth on a narrow footpath; once the trail leads onto the old road, you feel somewhat walled off from the forest by the thick growth of alders on either side of the road-trail."
