The south end of the Monte Carlo trail climbs moderate ton steep grades through second-growth and old-growth forests, interspersed with some harvest units. The trail crosses several roads before it begins the climb onto the ridge overlooking Holmes Creek and the White Salmon drainage. For the next 2-3 miles, the trail moves in and out of state land, passes by some old-growth Douglas fir, and goes through several old burned areas before it breaks out onto Monte Carlo Ridge. From here you can get excellent views of the Little Salmon drainage and surrounding peaks.
Directions: From Willard, Travel north on County Route 18 for approximately six miles to Forest Route 752. Follow 752 south to the trailhead.
Distance: 6.8 miles
