Great hiking and backpacking trail. Moderate to strenuous hike, 12 to 13 miles from Grundy Forest to Foster Falls. Take the spur trails at big fiery gizzard creek to see chimney falls and sycamore falls! Overnight camp at ravens point.

Even if you don't have time to hike very far, this is worth a visit. The trail starts to descend almost immediately from the parking lot, and you are next to the stream within 10 minutes. Trail is in very good shape, parts of it...More

I read all the great reviews on this trail which really helped me to plan well. We camped at the CCC since we didn't have time to hike in any further. The campsites are spacious with a fire ring. Saturday we loaded our stuff back...More
