    As you hike, experience as much as you can. Animals of all sorts are visible or just hidden. Trees of ancient stature rise high and proud. Mushrooms pop out of the forest duff. Flowers, ferns, history are all here to be explored along the banks of Opal Creek and the Little North Santiam.

    Just before the trail ends at Beachie Creek, you walk past ancient red cedars 900 years. You can picnic among them or along the creek bank. Waters are there to cool off the hot hiker.

    1.5 miles up the Bear Trail from Opal Pool, the trail ends at the confluence of Beachie and Opal Creeks. You are deep inside ancient forests. Green predominates. Birds call in the distance, whilce the water rushes along. The forest has been saved and you can experience it.
