Twentymile Creek Trail #414

From its lower terminus on the Santiam-sourdough Road #492, the Twentymile Creek Trail #414 pitches steeply uphill for about 0.4 mile. At this point the trail crosses a small creek and after a few yards intersects with an unnamed, blazed trail. The route bears to the right and continues on a gentle grade with short uphill and downhill pitches to its upper terminus at its intersection with Driveway Extension Trail #881. There are stream crossings at 0.8 mile, 0.9 mile, and 2.1 miles on Road #492. Trail #414 is closed yearlong to all motorized vehicles (except snowmobiles over snow) by Forest regulations in order to maintain a safer, more desirable route for hikers and horseback riders. It is an easy day trip on a round-trip basis, and is used for longer trips in conjunction with other trails in the area.
