From car to graveyard the walk is 1.6 miles over old road bed - it's a nice easy walk with a bit of elevation change, but overall, it's pretty easy. Do, however, plan accordingly.
If you have a Vehicle Use Permit, park here: N 46º 54.391 W 123º 59.615.
The old logging road meanders through a beautiful stretch of land that takes you through bits of alder trees that filled in rather quickly once given the chance and on down next to wetlands. Often times you will see, or hear, a fair amount of wildlife in here... you move into an evergreen forest and visions of trees from many years past. Your path will take you up from the wetlands and you will walk along the plateau where it's shaded, cool and calm. It's very serene and beautiful in here. The road dips back down to the water and goes up again. Somewhere after you've climbed up a bit, there will be a slight fork in the road, go to your right. --Sixdogteam
