Cascade Head

This is a short but steep hike to the top of Cascade Head. The first 1.5 miles are through forest with huge spruce trees (trail is muddy at times). The trail then continues up through open meadows with expansive views of the ocean and the Salmon River estuary below. Spring wildflowers and elk may be seen along the way. We will have lunch with a view at the top.
