elevation:50 feet

This is a logging road that goes from Highway 20 to the headwaters of Hare Creek. The trail follows a creek the entire distance. There's an ideal spot for lunch or rest stop on the Bunker Gulch Bridge while listening to the gurgling of the creek.


The trailhead is located just past Gate 440 at the 5.5 milepost on the south side of Highway 20. (#1) The first 1.6 miles is an old logging road that follows Bunker Gulch Creek. Road 440 then intersects with Road 400 (#2) which follows Hare Creek to the right (downstream) and left (upstream). At this junction is a very pleasant place to stop and rest and/or have a picnic lunch. Turn left and cross the bridge. The trail continues for approximately 1.5 miles, when it becomes too overgrown to wade through. (#3)
