Probably the most underrated segment of the North Umpqua Trail. It starts at the Kelsay Valley Trailhead. The first part meanders along the beginnings of the North Umpqua River, where wildflowers abound in springtime. It then pops out on a road, crosses the river, and then becomes singletrack again where it enters a partialy burned forest. When clear, this part of the trail flows well. It is relatively smooth and fast rolling but there are a few rocky sections to watch out for. Don't burn too many matches trying to hammer it, however, because the next segment (Dread and Terror) will work you!
Eastern trailhead is accessed at Kelsay Valley Trailhead. Trail can also be accessed at the intersection of Forest Road 60 and Forest Road 2612. The Western trailhead is on Forest Road 600
