{"results":{"recreation":[{"ID":"6876","post_title":"New London Trail","post_content":"The New London Trail derived its name from a very brief and small time copper mining operation (circa 1910'a-30;s) on Elliott Creek Ridge named \"New-London Claims\". The trail crosses into California and adits (an almost horizontal passageway to a mine) from the past claims are visible along the route. Please use caution entering these adits. As the trail switchbacks up from Elliott Creek to the ridge, the mixed hardwood and coniferous forest makes for a lovely understory ecosystem which supports a variety of species from White Trillium (Trillium ovatum) to a delicate endemic plant such as the Applegate Gooseberry (Ribes marshallii), to the more rare Rock Fern (Aspidotid densa). Bring along a plant identification book to see how many species can be keyed out along the walk to the ridge.

A loop may be made by following Elliott Ridge along the Stein Butte Trail #929 to its trailhead at Seattle Bar and walking the three mile section of road back to the New London Trailhead. Please remember to carry plenty of water as the few sources that may be available along this route in early spring to midsummer have not been tested for safety.","post_name":"new-london-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"41.9992","lng":"-123.12","distance":"2.3","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/new-london-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"7493","post_title":"Cook and Green Trail","post_content":"The Cook and Green Trail offers opportunities for fishing, camping and viewing a diverse forest ecosystem. Water may be found at two springs along the trail but has not been tested for safety. Treatment is recommended.

Beginning on Forest Road 1040, the trail begins a gradual ascent through a dense mixed forest comprised of canyon live oak, mountain mahogany and big leaf maple. The trail continues a 3.5 mile traverse above Cook and Green Creek before reaching No-See-Em camp. This campsite is one of only two sites large enough to accommodate 1-2 tents. After leaving the campsite, the trail climbs gradually along the west side of Bear Gulch. Here, the deciduous forest gives way to large stands of old growth Douglas-fir, Ponderosa pine, noble fir, and the rare Brewers spruce. Ferns, beargrass, and huckleberry bushes blanket the forest floor. A small spring is passed just prior to reaching Cook and Green Pass, marking the end of the trail.

This trail also offers an opportunity for a 15 mile loop beginning and ending at the Cook and Green Trailhead. To complete the loop, take the Cook and Green Trail 8.2 miles to the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail #2000 at Cook and Green Pass. From the pass, head southwest on the PCNST for two miles to the junction with Horse Camp Trail #958, above Echo Lake. Turn right and descend on the Horse Camp Trail for 3.9 miles to the Horse Camp Trailhead. From here, walk north on Road 1040 for half a mile to the Cook and Green Trailhead.","post_name":"cook-and-green-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"42.0031","lng":"-123.15","distance":"2.9","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/fishing\/hiking\/cook-and-green-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"7162","post_title":"Horse Camp Trail","post_content":"The Horse Camp Trail is a scenic trail offering access to the Red Buttes Wilderness Area and Echo Lake.

The trail climbs steeply from the trailhead through a shaded deciduous and mixed conifer forest. In 0.6 miles, the junction with the Butte Fork Trail #957 is reached. The Horse Camp Trail stays to the left and continues to climb steadily along the ridgeline. Horse Camp is reached after another mile with a spring located nearby. The trail continues to climb for another 1.5 miles before reaching a high mountain meadow dotted with an array of wildflowers. Deer are frequently seen grazing in the meadows. The Echo Lake junction at 6592 feet is soon reached - the trail to the right leads to Echo Lake, nestled in a small cirque basin below No Name Peak.

Panoramic views of Applegate Lake and the rugged Siskiyou Mountains may be seen along the ridge. Evidence of hydraulic, surface and lode mining activity, dating from the turn of the century, is present along the trail. There is no water along this route.

Beginning at Seattle Bar, the trail passes underneath the Applegate Road bridge and crosses Manzanita Creek Road 1041. Leaving this road, the trail climbs steadily through a mixed conifer forest at a moderate grade for 2.5 miles to Elliot Ridge. Views from the ridge display the dramatic differences between the dark green forests of the north slopes and the pale green and brown tones of predominantly brush and grass seen on the south facing slopes. The trail continues along the ridge to a crest just below Stein Butte. A short side trail to the top of Stein Butte offers excellent vistas of the Red Buttes and much of the Siskiyou Crest.

A loop can be made by leaving the ridgeline at the trail junction approximately 0.3 miles east of the side trail at the top of Stein Butte. At this trail junction, follow the 2.6 mile long New London Trail #928 down the relatively steep grade to Elliott Creek Road 1050. Turn right at the trailhead and follow the road back to Seattle Bar.","post_name":"stein-butte-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"42.016","lng":"-123.103","distance":"4.0","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/cycling\/hiking\/stein-butte-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"}]},"success":true,"html":""}
