Overview

The combined trail of Clark Mill Road and Tygh Creek Road begins at the old two room schoolhouse in the community of Friend, Oregon in the middle of rolling fields of wheat and hay. Mount Hood looms on the horizon to the west where the mountain's snow-pack helps to provide water to the entire region. The trail passes through oak savanna and grasslands with big views to the south of Central Oregon before plunging into the beginning of the canyon that hides Jordan Creek. A hidden waterfall waits to be discovered at Waypoint 5 where an old mill once stood before the trail continues down along the rim of the canyon. Near where Jordan Creek and Tygh Creek meet, the trail plunges into the canyon where fallow farm fields are tucked away between gnarled old cottonwood trees. A shallow stream crossing just before the end of the trail at Waypoint 6 helps to wash the dirt off of tires before the Clark Mill Road and Tygh Creek Road trail comes to an end at the blacktop outside of Tygh Valley, Oregon.
