1. Beautiful Waterfall

Beautiful waterfall in the distance.

2. Careful of the trail here

The trail is eroding in several places, this being one. Don't try to ride this, walk your bike or you'll risk a very painfall fall to the river far below.

3. Log Lunch Break

A nice log over the river to take a snack break :)

5. Notch for your head!

Check out the notch cut in this downed tree for your head. I hope this tree is still there as it was fun to ride under.

6. Another beautiful waterfall

Nice waterfall!

7. Umpqua hot springs

You'll have to cross the river and climb up a steep slope to the hot springs. From here follow the wooden fence and stairs back down to the main trail. You'll probably see naked people here. If you feel comfortable take a break and soak for a bit. The springs are really great.
