South Coast Striders Healthy Hike, Golden Silver Falls
Join the South Coast Striders! Newcomers welcome.
:ark at the new trail head and walk or bike 1.5 miles to the old trail head. It is then 1.4 miles up to the top of Golden Falls and 1.4 miles back. Don’t worry we will take it easy on the way up.
The long option for the day will be to continue beyond the top of Golden Falls along Glenn Creek and make a short visit to the old Elizabeth Ott homestead before hiking along Frog Creek for a nice lunch by the creek before heading back. This makes your total miles for the day 9.2 miles. Okay I hear you groaning, but it will be fun and outside of the 1.4 mile switchback trail to the upper falls there is not a lot of elevation gain.
