Join the Siuslaw Saunterers for a leisurely walk and talk of Siuslaw National Forest's PAWN Old Growth Trail in Minerva. Jim Grano and Tim Moffett from the Siuslaw Watershed Council and interpretive rangers from the US Forest Service will lead an informative stroll and highlight recent trail improvements, including the new "log walk", on May 7th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. This short trail makes a 4000-foot loop through old-growth forest along Taylor Creek and the North Fork Siuslaw River.
From Hwy 126 or Munsel Lake Road in Florence, turn north onto North Fork Road. Continue approximately 17 miles to Forest Service Road 2553 on your right. After turning onto FS 2553, trailhead parking will be on your right. Please consider carpooling to ensure adequate parking.
Participants for the hike must be able to traverse uneven surfaces, including brief sections of steepness and switchbacks. There is no restroom on site. The event is free, but donations are accepted. Registration is not required.
