    A bit of a drive to get to with some good potholes. I would recommend a high clearance vehicle, but otherwise it's manageable. The trail is a lovely hike through old growth forests and down to the creek. Downside being you walk downhill to the creek and then the rest of the hike is back uphill. Definitely a workout, but the trail naturally has steeper sections and then flattens a bit so you can catch your breath. All in all, it was a lovely hike and we even saw a bald eagle once we reached the creek, just beautiful!

    As others have mentioned, some big pot holes on the road in (I made it ok in my sedan). Beautiful forest with some massive Douglass Furs and Red Ceders. The trail is a pretty steep 3.7 mile (one way) climb, it's all downhill to the river, then all up on the way out. Fairly overgrown in the lower portions of the trail. Took about 2 and a half hours to backpack one way. Several good sites for camping along the river, very peaceful location

    Access to the Drift Creek Wilderness. Went up via the western end of FR-3446 (on Google it's FR-3484) in a high clearance 2-wd. Should be ok with a sedan but there are some big potholes and the final 0.2 miles or so I'd say would be better with high clearance, but I saw a Corolla at the trailhead so it's probably OK.

    One of only a very few wilderness preserves in the entire coast range.

    If your looking for a quite peaceful hike in the forest, Drift Creek Wilderness is the place to go on the central coast. It's a bit of a drive to get to, but the scenery is beautiful. The road to the trail head is well-marked. And once on the trail, you will walk through old growth stands of Sitka spruce and western hemlocks. And if backpacking is your thing but don't have a lot of time, there are ample places along Drift Creek to pitch a tent and go to sleep to the sounds of running water. A very peaceful and serene hike. We all need a little nature
