Gales Creek Trail: Wilson River Highway Summit to Gales Creek Campground Professional Review and Guide

"Descend this newly reconstructed trail through vibrant, second-growth forest, from atop the Coast Range at the Wilson River Highway Summit to Gales Creek Campground. As you hike take note of the wide diversity of plant life and watch the creekbed for evidence of beavers at work.

Leaving the Summit Trailhead the trail passes a signboard, then descends switchbacks and steps, through the second-growth forest of Douglas fir and alder. Vine maple and salal form much of the understory, along with Oregon grape and devil’s club. In places sword ferns nearly cover the forest floor."
