Castle Rock Fork Creek Wilderness Hike
Date: July 7, 2019
Hike leader: Umpqua Watersheds Wilderness Committee
Description: 8 miles in and out, elevation gain 400’
Areas of Interest: The trail begins at Castle Rock Fork Creek Trailhead; in July the wildflowers should be in bloom everywhere. The trail passes through a beautiful and pristine forest of old-growth Douglas fir. The sight of these ancient trees is truly awesome. The trail parallels Castle Rock Fork Creek for approximately two miles where the trail and the creek meet. Castle Rock Fork Creek is an exceptionally cold, clear water source and contributes the greatest volume of water of any creek to the headwaters of South Umpqua River.
Meet/Carpool Info: Meet at the Fowler Street (junction of Fowler Street & Hwy. 138 across the street from the library) at 9:00 am. We can carpool.
If you’re in South Douglas County meet at the Tiller Ranger Station at approximately 10:00 AM
Bring: Bring water & lunch, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray. Be prepared with appropriate footwear and rain gear.
