Hikes That Use This Trail: Harper Creek Falls


Follows an old road bed up Raider Camp Creek from the campsite below Harper Creek Falls. Deeply eroded in places. Bypasses a section of the old road on a singletrack trail.

Formerly, this trail ended near the Kawana settlement above South Harper Creek Falls. Now, at the point where the Mountains to Sea Trail swings south off of Raider Camp, the official route of this trail goes north down the ridge above South Harper Creek Falls to the cliff-top overlook area. Shortly before reaching the overlook, the trail veers left and begins a gradual descent through a series of switchbacks to the creek at an area above the falls. The trail crosses the creek onto an angled rock slab before reaching the Harper Creek trail in a short distance on the other side.
