The Drift Creek North trail is nothing short of spectacular, if you can find it… Wendy was reading our Oregon Coast hiking book while we were yurting and picked out the Drift Creek North trail as a possible hiking adventure. It was quite an adventure. The forest service road to the trail took over an hour to navigate as I dodged trees, thorns, boulders, etc. The trail takes you through what I would describe as an Oregon rain forest. It was beautiful. I had never seen mammoth old growth trees like this before. I think I could have spent a lifetime exploring that part of the Siuslaw National Forest. Here are a few photographs from our Drift Creek North experience.

Looks incredible! Did you run into anyone else while you were out there?
I don’t think that there were any people around for miles and miles. We did almost get into an accident on the way back down the forest service road. A truck came barreling up one of the switchbacks and I had to swerve on to what little shoulder existed at that section of the road. The trail was completely people free. It is in such a secluded area that I am guessing it’s not on the to-do list for most folks…
That area is absolutely stunning! We should count ourselves as extremely lucky to be living in Oregon!
