Description

The misnamed Geyser Valley Trail starts at the end of the Rica Canyon Trail. From here, it's worth the short detour on Goblin's Gate Trail to see this narrow rock gorge that constricts the churning Elwah River. Back on the Geyser Valley Trail, head over level ground, following the lush riverside path upstream. Multiple enticing campsites are scattered along the length of the trail.

Pass the junction with Kraus Bottom Trail and continue towards Humes Ranch, set atop a grassy field. Folks lived in this recently restored homestead cabin until 1934. Interpretive signs here explain the historical significance and point out the fruit trees that still live nearby. Leave the wildflowers and meadows behind and continue to the end of the Geyser Valley Trail on a short uphill pitch through the woods to the junction with Humes Ranch / Long Ridge Trail. (From here, many people enjoy taking a side trip on the Humes Ranch / Long Ridge Trail upstream to the "Grand Canyon" of the Elwah to see the suspension bridge.)

Flora & Fauna

Deer, elk and bear.
