Short Description of Activity
We monitored trail #441 for solitude and stopped for a meal afterward.
We noted 17 hikers on the trail and one dog on a leash. No occupied campsites were noted along the trail. 4 low elevation flights were also heard. We had a great time and it is a wonderful trail along the Multnomah creek. Notable old growth of cedar and doug fir. Lots of fireweed as the area was recovering from the devasting 2017 Gorge fires. 2 very cool bridges that we crossed over the creek.
