This trail makes an excellent short day hike from High Bridge, visiting waterfalls and a narrow gorge on Agnes Creek. The trail begins in the woodlands, providing superb examples of the influence of microclimates on forest communities: The dry, sunny hillsides at the mouth of the Agnes Creek valley are home to drought- and fire-tolerant species such as Douglas fir, ponderosa pine, manzanita, and kinnikinnick. As the trail progresses into moist pockets of shade, red cedar, grand fir, and mountain ash become the dominant trees.
