This is a short hike deep in the coastal range that brings you to an amazing waterfall and a very high and long suspension bridge. You may lose gps signal deep in the forest but the trail is very clear. You'll have a choice to take a loop trail on the way back to make the hike a little longer which is what this track shows.
North of Depoe Bay on Highway 101 you'll pass by the Salishan golf course. Turn right just past this onto Drift Creek Road. Follow this a quarter mile, then angle right on South Drift Creek Road. Turn left onto Forest Service Road 17 and drive up the road for 10 miles to the trailhead.
Here you will have the option to take a longer loop trail through the woods. This will take you past a stand of beautiful birch trees. This adds some elevation to the hike but gives you a different perspective on the way back.
