Horse Creek South Trail #1362


From the South trailhead, the trail enters the Drift Creek Wilderness after 1.6 miles as it descends through old growth Douglas-fir, hemlock and Sitka spruce toward Drift Creek . 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.
