The trail winds through a Douglas-fir forest mixed with vine maple, salal, and sword fern. The main trail turns left and follows a bluff above North Fork Wolf Creek. The trail leads to a power line access road. Follow the road 125 feet, and look for the trail to dive back into the forest at the top of the hill. To finish out the day, continue down the road to the Sunset Rest Area and hike the Steam Donkey interpretive trail.<\/p>","post_name":"four-county-point-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.7807","lng":"-123.348","distance":"0.2","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/four-county-point-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"1254750","post_title":"Steam Donkey Trail","post_content":"

Springboard Loop (0.3 mile): <\/strong>
Walk along this easy interpretive trail and take a trip back in time, when steam power was in full swing.
Begin this walk by crossing the bridge over South Fork Rock Creek. Stay right and follow the trail as it meanders into the forest. A sign explains the operatio of a steam donkey. Look directly behind the sign for the remnants of the log sled that once held the donkey engine. Visitors can take a sharp left to stay on<\/p>\r\n

Springboard Loop, or continue forward to Dooley Spur Loop for an 0.8 mile walk. The trail on the right is where Dooley Spur Loop ends.<\/p>\r\n

Dooley Spur Loop (0.5 mile):<\/strong>
A portion of the upper loop follows an old railroad grade, which was used to haul logs out of the forest prior to the 1933 Wolf Creek Fire. The trail crosses a small stream and drops back down near Rock Creek before climbing a series of stairs. After a gentle ascent, the trail levels off under the planted forest canopy. Cross another small stream, and keep right to return to Springboard Loop.<\/p>","post_name":"steam-donkey-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.7964","lng":"-123.459","distance":"8.3","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/steam-donkey-trail\/","terms":"a

This day-use site accesses the central part of the paved Banks-Vernonia State Trail, via a wooden footbridge that's wide enough for a wheelchair but steep on one end. Once across the bridge, explore the riparian mixed forest, with an understory of salal and Oregon grape, and willows in the side sloughs. In spring, listen for Pacific-slope Flycatcher and look for Wilson's and MacGillivray's Warbler in the understory. Red-breasted Sapsucker and Pileated Woodpecker also occur. A vault toilet is 0.1 mi S of the trailhead along the trail.
