Still Creek Trail #780


Still Creek Trail with wooden bridge over Still Creek

A very pleasant forest trail that begins out of Camp Creek Campground. The middle segment of this trail contains a short boardwalk that guides the hiker through a nice wet Cedar grove.

There are a couple of steeper pitches at the beginning and end of the trail, but overall the trail is moderately easy. There is one section soon after leaving the campground that has smooth, sloped rock, which creates awkward footing for a very short distance.
