Activity Notes

Idiot creek is in the coast range and the trailhead starts at the Elk Creek trailhead. Cross the west fork of Elk creek on a single handrail bridge and up we go from there on an evenly graded trial with 16 switchbacks to the top (We call it sweet sixteen). Lots of Sword fern, Doug Fir, and some western Hemlock. At the top there is a viewpoint looking down on the Wilson River valley where we will stop and have lunch and then return by the same trail back to the cars. Total of seven miles with 1200-foot Elevation gain. This trail is only minimally used so we most likely have some solitude in a beautiful costal forest.
