The South Fork Nation Recreation Trail is a scenic and gentle climb up the South Fork Trinity River in Shasta-Trinity National Forest into the Yolla Bolly - Middle Eel Wilderness. The first 7.2 miles is a popular and easy former wagon road that is a now a wide doubletrack dirt path, commonly used by families and mountain bikers. Several small picturesque bridges allow easy crossing over the river. The remaining 9-10 miles is more rarely traveled.
