Description

You'll first come upon the yellow-blazed Hidden Hill Trail at a point along the Basin Creek Trail. For the first 0.3 miles, you can expect to head uphill, eventually crossing the utility line corridor. Continue through the high country of the park until you drop down to the creek. Meander along the creek and follow some elevated boards to keep your shoes out of the mire. Shallow Ford Loop Trail is soon found on your right. Continue on a short while until you are back where you started.

Flora & Fauna

Visit this area in the autumn to see it erupt in fiery fall color.
