The Iron Creek Campground Loop Trail is a barrier-free trail designed for everyone, including, families and anyone looking for a wide, level trail. The trail circles the campground, weaving through hardwoods, old growth Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar and Hemlock. Much of the trail offers beautiful views of the Cispus River.

This trail can be accessed from various locations in the Iron Creek Campground and from Iron Creek Picnic Area. The trail, built by volunteers, connects with Iron Creek Oldgrowth Trail #83 at the Iron Creek Picnic Area. The picnic area serves as the primary trailhead for both trails.
