Port Orford Cedars of Pipe Fork Creek
October 10 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Hike through the unique Port Orford cedar forests of this secluded canyon where the spring fed stream
flows over boulders and logs on its way to Williams Valley. Experience the beautiful waterfalls that
cascade over metamorphic rock of Grayback Mountain. Ferns and rare plants grow in the moist
atmosphere on the walls of the canyon giving it a quiet and ancient feel. The hike borders on the
Pipefork Research Natural Area designated to preserve this legacy forest in the Klamath Ecosystem.
Here the story of how the local community is active to save this landscape for future generations.
Meet at the Williams Grange 20100 Williams Hwy. (or Williams General Store) to drive to Pipe Fork at 10
AM to start this hike through Old Growth forests and along the historic Layton Ditch Trail. This 4 hour
hike will give you a glimpse into the forest ecosystem and history of this area.
Bring lunch and water and prepare for a hike of medium difficulty. There are no public restrooms.
