Wonderful and peaceful place with Lush Oregon rainforest! Highly recommend! The 9,000-acre Cummins Creek Wilderness has only one official trail that goes through it: this is the is Cummins Ridge Trail which bisects the wilderness by running the ridge crest along its spine. However, if you want to see the some of the massive old-growth spruce for which the wilderness is known, you’ll have to take another route. The official trails on the loop described here stay out of the wilderness, but an unofficial trail which begins near the trailhead will take you down into the wilderness and Cummins Creek itself. There are big Sitka Spruce down here as well as soggy bogs and confusing elk trails! To make a longer day out of it, continue on the regular trails. There’s one viewpoint, but also many more massive old-growth trees (Douglas-fir and western hemlock in addition to Sitka spruce)
Amazing hike. Moderate to difficult. Great place for a forest bath. 💜
Beautiful area with nice trails.
