Hackleman Creek Old-Growth Trail (#3411) is an easy 0.8 mile trail. This trail is a self-guided interpretive trail that takes you through a classic old-growth stand of Douglas fir, western red cedar, and mountain hemlock. You may feel stunted by some trees over 500 years old that have survived floods, fire and windstorms. One loop winds along Hackleman Creek, home to the Hackleman trout, a subspecies of cutthroat trout. The other loop is designed for people with disabilities. Wheelchair access is considered difficult due to grade. An interpretive brochure at trailhead challenges you to think about the complexities of an old-growth forest.
