Trail Description: The Angwin hike was one of those place the group had gone to years ago (prehistoric) and had on a spur of the moment decided to try it again. We flailed around indecisively taking a few wrong trails and turns but finally reached Inspiration Point and the picnic grounds a mile or so beyond. While it was an interesting hike, unfortunately the time of year combined with a near climax forest severely limited the numbers of flowering plants.  But if you like deep Tan Oak and Douglas Fir forests, then this comes highly recommended. 

Trail Location: Largely private (part of the Pacific Union Religious College land), we aren't suppose to recommend trespassing, but it starts out at the Angwin Parrett Airport parking lot and heads North East. Just look scholarly as you hike.
