Description

The eastern section of this trail enters the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness that is part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. Views from the ridge along Wildcat Mt are outstanding. This is a less visited trail so solitude is easier to find. Parking at the Upper Douglas Trailhead (old Wildcat rock pit) at 3600’ elevation puts you in the middle of the trail. Going eastward the trail climbs a newly reconstructed route along a forested ridge to McIntyre Ridge Trail and breaks out into views (4400’) near Wildcat Mt (4480’- side trip). It continues near the ridge and 4000’ elevation to its eastern end at Plaza Trail. Going westward the trail descends crossing some harvested areas, bumps up onto a closed paved road for almost a ½ mile and then continues descending down through classic westside forest to the old 255 spur road (2400’) that can take you to Eagle Creek Trail. This last ¾ is a reroute done in 2005.
