Description

The Waters Creek Trail passes through various habitats, including riparian, meadow, grassland, and mixed forest. This leads to a diversity of wildflower species (over 200!).

The first mile of the trail is barrier-free. You can add a mile to the loop by continuing beyond the upper end of Waters Creek. Additional trail information can be found at the Siskiyou National Forest web site.

Directions

From Grants Pass, take Highway 199 to the town of Wonder between mileposts 12 and 13. Immediately after you see the Wonder Chapel, turn right onto Waters Creek Road. After driving several miles, first on a paved road, then on gravel, you will see a large parking area and toilet for the Waters Creek botanical trail on the left. The trailhead is on the other side of the road.
