The trail meanders through young Douglas-fir and Western Hemlock forest. The trail ends at Henline Falls. Here you will find remnants of old mining from the 1930's. A mine adit was built into the solid rock wall and goes back in about 1500 feet.
However, recently it has been gated off at about 100 feet, which is disappointing. Would be fun to explore further back into the dark.
Another thing to note, the mine is a bit difficult to get up to for little kids, and they will need a hand so they don't fall especially if the rock is wet (not really that dangerous just be careful)
From Salem, travel East on Hwy 22 to milepost 23 at the Swiss Village Restaurant. Turn left on North Fork Road, which is marked "Little North Santiam Recreation Area". Travel about 19 miles to forest road 2207 junction, continue past this junction for ¼ mile. Trailhead is on the left side.
