    To hike
    To reach the NORTH end of this trail from Portland, OR - follow US 26 to 10.5 miles east of Sandy, turning right onto BLM road 2-7-31, Wildcat Creek Road, just after Windell’s Snowboard Camp (near milepost 35). From here it is approximately 4.5 miles to the trailhead. The BLM has gated the road at milepost 1.5 due to extensive off-road vehicle damage occurring in the area but foot traffic is welcome. There should be a “Y” near or at the gate – go left. Then go 1.3 miles and go left at “Y”. Next, go 0.8 miles and turn right at “Y”. Go to the end of the road which is a widening of the road in the middle of a clear cut with several “user roads” fork off. The trail starts in the southeast corner of the clear cut. So, if you walk one of the user roads that head to the southeast you will connect with it. If you find yourself going downhill, you have gone the wrong way.

    To reach the SOUTH end of this trail from Portland, Take the Douglas Trail approximately 1 mile east to the McIntyre Ridge Trail. See directions to Douglas Trail #781.
