Drift Creek Campsite

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Campsite at Drift Creek, Horse Creek Trail (bobcat)


This remote campsite sits above Drift Creek and serves as the terminus of the Horse Creek Trail (north section). In the fall, look for spawning coho and chinook salmon in the stream.

There are two almost vertical short access trails down to Drift Creek from the camp, but it is far easier to proceed upstream on a user trail that takes you on a gentler descent down the bluff at two large old-growth trees to a mossy maple and the creek bank.

In late summer/early fall, the creek will be sufficiently low so you can ford it (Use poles for support). You can pick your way downstream to connect with the Harris Ranch Trail. The third trail in the wilderness, Drift Creek South, reaches the creek just over a mile upstream.
