My NWTopos map shows a faint trail going all the way to N47.00036 W121.76859, which appears to be about 1.5 miles further than your waypoint. It does show the trail ending at a creek and also refers to the trail as "Chenius creek road".

Hi - is the trail you are describing on the north side of the creek (the now closed NF Road 7840), or does it stay on the south side until it crosses the creek near N47.00036 W121.76859?

I had to open up this location in Google Maps to verify, but yes, the "faint trail" I was describing is in fact the old closed NF-7840 (see LINK). The point where my NW Topos map shows the "faint trail ending" is the location where Google Maps shows the old road ends. Note that I've never been on this hike! My comment was based solely on looking at the map.

Can you not proceed (via hiking) all the way to the end of the old road at N47.00036 W121.76859 anymore?

I've hiked 7840, but after about half way the trail is over grown with densely packed saplings. You would need to weave your way forward. Cutting would be required to try and continue on 7840.
