The trail follows the South Fork of Cow Creek through an old-growth forest of primarily Douglas Fir and Western Hemlock. Be prepared to ford five stream crossings up to two feet deep in winter. Several types of ferns grow in wet areas along the trail and vine maples display a variety of colors in the fall. Use is low and opportunities for solitude and nature study are abundant.
