Herman Creek Trail, Oregon

   
The Herman Creek Trail was constructed for foot access to the old site of a wartime lookout built to spot ballon bomb sent over by Japan. There were three cabins just past the cliff road and the end of the Herman Creek cut-off trail which statrted at seven and a half mile camp in what was once Cedder Swamp just below Mud Lake. Says Chet Irving

There are two trailheads to chose from, one in each end which means you have the option of backpacking it one way if you have someone to pick you up at the other end. With its 14.8 miles of walking distance; it's a long great outdoors trail. Of course, this is an overnight backcountry hike, 2 days normally, so make sure you've got all your overnight gear packed. The total elevation difference for Herman Creek Trail is 3,514 feet which is higher than average. Some parts of this great outdoors trail are much higher up than other parts of the great outdoors trail, and that means that some parts of the great outdoors trail could be very different from other parts of it. This area does get very dry sometimes, so do check for current fire restrictions before you go if you plan to bring a stove or make a camp fire. Now this wilderness trail is pretty long, so don't forget to pack enough supplies.
