Horse Creek North Trail #1362.1

From the north trailhead, the trail enters Drift Creek Wilderness after 0.6 mile while descending toward Drift Creek, traveling through old growth Douglas-fir, hemlock and Sitka spruce. There is no bridge at the Drift Creek, and crossing can be difficult. The best time to cross is in late summer when water levels are down.
