This trail offers opportunities for swimming in the emerald pools of the river, fishing for brook trout, or picnicking along the rivers edge. While several springs are found along the trail, the water sources have not been tested and may be unsafe to drink. This is a good hike to view brilliant autumn colors! The upper section of this trail is not recommended for horse use due to the narrow tread and rocky creek crossings. The trailhead on the 1035 road provides the best access for a horse back rider with reasonable turnaround room for vehicles with trailers. Beginning on Forest Service Road 1035, the trail passes through lush fern grottos, unique pothole formations and deep swimming holes. The forest displays a mixed deciduous stand of alder, dogwood and big leaf maple. After 3.4 miles the trail crosses Forest Service road 1040 at the Frog Pond/Cameron Meadows Trailhead. The upper section of the trail is within the Red Buttes Wilderness for approximately 0.5 miles. The forest changes dramatically to mixed stands of old growth Douglas-fir, white fir, incense cedar, and ponderosa pine. Huckleberry, hazelnut, and vine maple form a dense understory. The trail ends on Forest Service road 1040-600 at Bean Gulch.
