    A difficult day hike with ridgetop views, streams, and enough hilly terrain to keep you working.

    From the parking lot, the trail enters into the forest. After 0.8 miles, cross over a dirt road and turn left. At the T junction on FS 374 turn right. Cross Fairly Bridge Road to continue on the trail on the other side.

    After some ups and downs through the forest you will climb up to a ridge with nice views, about 3 miles in, followed by a steep descent. The trail will then follow Black Creek. The turnaround point is 6.4 miles in, at the junction with FS 382 B, an asphalt road.

    Follow The Creek

    I just hiked a couple days in the wilderness area. The trail is longer than the review states, about 42 miles. There is plenty info at the ranger station in Wiggins. The trail is well marked, shady and easy low hills. I didn't see any wildlife, or people. It's beautiful, but prepare for mosquitos. I'd hike this before it gets too hot.

    Varied Terrain, Minimal Scenery

    Note: after crossing the road .8mi into the hike, turn *right* to come to the T-junction. This hike is mostly through dense forest, with plenty of brief but challenging ascents and descents. That said, we did not reach a ridge with a view. There were a few pretty clearings and, generally, being in the thick of the forest was nice - the trail felt very secluded. Overall, though, I would recommend this if you want a vigorous trail run and don't care about scenery.
