Immediately cross a small creek over two thin logs as the trail moves right to climb a couple hundred feet in elevation W fairly steeply up turns to the next juncture. Leave Trail 600 at the juncture for the left turn on Newton Creek Trail 646 (old sign). Hike SE pleasantly down less than 2 mi to the end of the loop over the moraine ridgeline with expansive views much of the way. There are 2 switchbacks just right of the ridge as you leave it for a bit with the route steepening for a short time. Then be mindful past all the snags near the edge of the ridge (far above the creek) as erosion is ongoing in a big way. Bushwhack somewhat away from the edge and trail if necessary. There are great shots of Gnarl Ridge up to Lamberson Your travel destination iste and part of Mount Hood. The route mellows and narrows through more pines off the moraine to finish over tiny creeks, and is truly a delightful and peaceful loop option not to be missed. Turn right at the end of Trail 646 for 1 mi to the TH.
