The trail follows along Wilson Creek on this secluded forest drive on Crown Land. The road is mostly well-maintained except for a small section of rough road on a steep incline just past Wilson Lake. That brief section defines the rating for the trail.

The road is called Wilson Lake Road to the west of the lake, and southeast of the lake, the road is called Wilson Creek, but it's the same road. Trees line most of the road, but there are clearings where you can see Wilson Creek, and when you get high enough, there are great views of the Columbia Mountains.

Along the way, stop at Beaver Lake Campground. It’s a small but peaceful tree-lined lake with nice campsites. Wilson Lake, near the north end of the trail, also offers campsites, some of which are right on the water. Neither of these campgrounds requires fees.
