About this Hike 

The Brice Creek Trail is a perfect place to spend a summer evening, with rocky banks and towering trees. Hike up to Upper Trestle Falls through moss-covered maples and fern-covered rock walls. The falls are best in late-Spring and early-June due to the recent snow-melt, but be on the watch for poison oak. 

Getting There

1. From Cottage Grove, take Row River Rd. east for 19 miles. 

2. Once you reach the junction of Layng Creek Rd. and Brice Creek Rd., stay right on Brice Creek Rd. for 8.2 miles.

3. At the junction of Champion Creek Rd. and Brice Creek Rd., park before the bridge and follow the Brice Creek Trail across the foot bridge to the Trestle Creek Falls Trailhead.
