I didn't realize it had a name at all, but this small bit of new information on this very old post gives me a small joy today. Thanks!
I did Primrose yesterday and the trail is in much better shape now than alluded to in this post. There is easily hiked tread (although sometimes faint) throughout with a small section of logging road about halfway - at the trail/road junction there is a sign. There is a primrose planted at the northern end.

Even though it is in good shape with respect to previous years, if you are not comfortable with faint trails or you are an inexperienced hiker you'll want to have knowledgeable company along.

Yes, I've been paruseing this forum for a small amount of time and most everyone seems to be incredibly knowledgeable and experienced, it's wonderful to gain insight. I'm definitely not a beginner but certainly have much to learn and many miles to put under my boots. That being said, I do believe I feel confident in navigating those faint trails, and will be excited to take a jaunt down this one the next time hiking Devil's Rest.

Hey Emily,

Sounds great! I'm looking forward to the trip report, photos or it didn't happen. :)

Just wanted to say I decided to hike down Primrose in it’s entirety today. Someone has definitely taken care of this since the fire (maybe quite recently too). Fresh flagging and cut brush. And some new signage as well! So mostly what I’m saying is thank you to whoever did this work.

Should I be worried?

New piece of trail at the bottom now pops you out a bit more west than the old alignment.

Wow, this thread is over 10 years old and here you are with an update and the promised photos, thanks. I no longer live in the area but it is nice to see this trail still has friends. I will have to make time to come up and visit Primrose after all this COVID business is done. A terrific post.

Thanks! Better late than never I suppose. I look forward to putting all this Covid business in the past as well, hopefully you get a chance to visit the gorge soon.
