Onion Mountain Road Professional Reviews and Guides

"These trails combing to form a moderately difficult six-mile loop. Onion Way Trail travels through areas that the forest service refers to as "harvest units." Others call them "places where the trees have been cut down." Parts of this trail are very pleasant, passing through stands of young fir and madrone. Other sections feel more raw.

Briggs Creek is lovely, and the creek is beautiful. Maples hang over the bubbling stream, and everything seems to drip with green moss. Stately old-growth firs line the lower reaches of the trail. Begins near Sam Brown Campground, approximately 30 miles west of Grants Pass."
