it has a feel of "roadless travelled" - the sense of mystery and enchment is alluring!

The amount of moss seen here makes it appear as if they have become their own monster as they completely cover the branches.

This is a marvelous photo capturing the old growth forests of Oregon. You did a great job including the large tree trunks, the twisted trees, the undergrowth, the moss, the path. Where is this?

20 Mar 2013 10:35pm

@Anita: You go up to the Lewisburg Saddle a few miles north of Corvallis. Then you go east on a Forest Service dirt road for about .5 mi, where the Old Growth Trail begins. You go down the trail about .5 to the bridge.

Anita from West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States

Thanks. I'm sending link to photo and the directions to my sister. Maybe next time I visit her we can go there.

@Anita: You would take Hwy. 99 north from Corvallis. Turn left on Lewisburg Rd. (there is a traffic light); go a mile or so to Sulphur Springs Rd. and turn right (you can only turn right); go up to the saddle and park. If you find yourself going downhill, you have gone too far. When you start walking east (the right side of the road), right away, one FS Rd. goes up and one goes down; take the one that goes down. In less than a mile, you will see a clearing on the left; right after that, there is the trail sign (easy to miss); you go left and down into the Old Growth Forest.
