We’ve partnered with Roadtrippers to provide a great way to plan a trip around Oregon. So start planning your next road trip to here, there or pretty much anywhere in Oregon.

The Crawfish Trail generally follows ridge lines through a varied forest and clearcuts that provide for an occasional view of the forest around you. The trail gains 3,000 feet through old-growth forest and young vigorous stands. This trail is located in prime timber growing land as you can see by up to three foot long leader growth on the Douglas-fir. The “leader” is the new growth between the annual whorl of side limbs. By counting the number of whorls you can determine a tree’s age

This trail is known as a “way” trail in that it was originally constructed as a direct way to access parts of the forest to patrol for fires. These way trails connected with ridge line trails and fire lookouts and therefor are typically steep (5%-30% in this case). This single track trail is steep with numerous switchbacks that offer an exertive elevation gain for trail users and a challenge for experienced mountain bikers. Water is not available along the trail once you leave Brice Creek.

The Crawfish Trail is part of a 11 mile trail loop system connecting with the Knott Trail #1417 with the Adams Mountain Way Trail #1419 and Brice Creek Trail #1403. For a shorter route, this trail crosses over the Dog Creek Road #2263-717 at mile point 1.1 (approx. 150′ before Road #811) and again at mile point 2.5. It also crosses over the Adams Mountain. Road #2241 at mile point 7.3.
