The Brice Creek Trail traverses a scenic, rocky creek with numerous small waterfalls and pools. It is a popular place to spend a summer afternoon, as well as suitable for pleasant fall, mild winter and warm spring days. The old-growth forests, stream side trail and a few short open segments along cliffs provide a variety of environments to explore. Photography, fishing, camping, picnicking, berry picking and nature study are popular along Brice Creek.
Plan 3 to 5 hours to hike the entire length of the trial, or several shorter trips can be made by starting from the foot bridges at Lund Park or at Cedar Creek Campground. Travel west to east for the best views of the creek. Motorized use is prohibited on Brice Creek Trail. Expect to meet hikers, mountain bikers and possibly a few horseback riders on the trail.
All water should be boiled or treated with chemicals prior to drinking. Along open steep areas, watch your footing and avoid the poison oak. Footing is particularly dangerous during freezing rain and snow storms, avoid the steep areas under those conditions.
