This is a short hike down into a tree-filled gorge. The trail switchbacks down a hill somewhat steeply and then travels parallel to Elbo Creek.
Tree branches obstruct hiker's view of a nice waterfall on Elbo Creek, but views on trail are typical of the Peninsula - lush greenery and rushing creeks abound. This trail is particularly nice in the autumn, since most of the trees lining the trail are deciduous, offering a beautiful display of color in the fall.
Hike beyond Elbo Creek about a half mile, then end at an overlook of the Quilcene River. This is a nice, easy hike to enjoy the sights and sounds of the peninsula.
