Larison Creek Trail #3646

  

This popular 6.3 mile (10.1 km), moderate trail follows Larison Cove on Hills Creek Reservoir and then Larsion Creek through lush, green vegetation. The trail has a 1,500 feet elevation gain (trail begins at 1,600 feet and ends at 3,100 feet) and winds through old growth Douglas-fir, western hemlock, western red cedar, incense cedar, vine maple, big leaf maple, ferns, salal and ceanothus on the drier sites. It is open to hikers, horses and mountain bikes. Motorcycles are prohibited.

The lower section of trail is accessible through the winter. The spring season offers a variety of wildflowers, and autumn holds a spectacular array of color. Dispersed camping is a destination two miles upstream at the head of the cove. This trail offers a good mountain bike loop by utilizing Forest Roads 2102, 2102-101 and 21. 

Poison oak is found along the trail where it follows Larison Cove. The upper end of the trail crosses Larison Creek and high stream flows in the winter and spring may make for a difficult crossing.
