Noonday Trail

Thursday, November 17, 2016

Alt Names

Noonday Wagon Road Trail, Brice Creek Trail, Champion Creek Trailhead, Umpqua National Forest, Bohemia Mining District

Last Known StatusOpen

Originally a wagon road used by early miners during the late 1800's, this historic trail is now mostly a dirt road with a few washouts that follows Champion Creek. The trail starts as a hill climb from Champion Creek Trailhead and then levels off.

The area is scenic and has beautiful views of waterfalls and of the Cascade Mountain Range. The trail is most accessible during the late spring and fall months.

Nearby Fairview Peak Lookout Site has a 53' lookout tower and a furnished cabin available for around $50/night. A gate combination code is required to access the lookout site which is only given out to customers who are renting the tower.
