Middle South Fork Trail #988

  

The Middle South Fork Trail is a delightful 6.3 mile hike, passing through a mixed conifer forest interspersed with sheltering stands of old-growth Douglas fir. This hike provides picnicking and fishing for brook trout. This is an excellent hike for the entire family!

Beginning on Forest Road 37, the trail gradually descends along the river, crossing several small creeks. The observant hiker can enjoy several species of wildlife along the river and side streams; including deer pileated woodpeckers and water ouzels (dippers). Evidence of past beaver activity can be seen in several of the log jams that cross the river. Huckleberries are abundant on the upper reaches of the trail.
