"Hike along and above the Dungeness River in an impressive steep canyon. Walk through groves of towering ancient conifers. Visit a historical shelter and admire silvery cascades. This trail through a rugged and lightly traveled landscape is a good choice when higher ground is blanketed in white. Open to mountain bikes, horses, and motorbikes. Several slides may be problematic or dangerous to cross. As of 2016, part of FR Spur 230 was washed out, requiring walking from FR 2870 or using the upper trailhead." Read more

trail is in great shape! At the top of the climb there is a connecting trail called three oclock ridge! great single track.decend down .5 mile to main trail. go right to gold creek trail. or go left to go back to the car,which would be a short but sweet loop.
