Description

Cross the service bridge and immediately turn left (east). Run the doubletrack around behind the CCC Campground and continue onto the singletrack.

The trail tracks along the south side of the river winding through brush, over rock slides, and through grassy vales. At 1.9 miles, the trail empties into a large pullout. Continue straight through and find the trail running between the road and the hillside.

The trail has a short, steep climb up the hill through the trees and then continues to another pullout at 2.2 miles. Stay right and run through the second pullout on the doubletrack up to the gate. At 2.5 miles, the trail forks. Both trails meet back up at 2.8 miles, so take your pick.

The trail continues on and (currently) stops at a game fence at 3.8 miles.
