40:40:20 Adventuring: Swordfern Trail
Just wanting to get out of town and find some trails and warmth, I happened upon the gems of hiking in the Umpqua National Forest, outside of Cottage Grove Oregon. I originally was going to camp at the main Dorena lake Campground but found a small campground deeper into the national forest. Rujada Campground was small enough to not attract too much traffic, yet large enough to provide some amenities that I like. The Swordfern Trail Trailhead is actually located in this campground.
The trail is a short two miler circling around the campground. The lush ferns though are amazing and the forest smell intoxicating! A great little leg stretcher to prep you for the longer trails that surround the area.
