Camp Comfort Trail #1586

Area Status: Temporarily Closed
This area is Closed
 

For such a short hike, Camp Comfort Trail is enormously rewarding. This 0.25-mile gentle trail leads forest visitors to the confluence of Black Rock Fork and Castle Creek Fork, which is the beginning of the South Umpqua River. A flat, rocky outcrop beside the river makes this a perfect picnic spot.
