Near the fish hatchery, this is a fun but gradual downhill W to E with jump after jump and the river is far down in the gorge below. Also bypasses a terrible, dusty, hot, sunny climb on FR 475 in either direction. Several landslides in September of 2004 sent parts of this trail sliding 100' into the river below.
