Located on the eastern side of the island, this 0.4 mile moderate difficulty unmarked trail goes down hill across forested pasture land to a foot gate in the forest reserve boundary fence, then continues to the Dr. David Douglas monument erected in 1934. It is rarely maintained and old fence wire may be tangled in the underbrush. Wear bright color clothing, as this area is open year round for game mammal hunting. The trail leads to the death site of Dr. David Douglas, the Scottish botanist for whom the Douglas Fir is named.
