Description

Start out at an old steel post corral at the confluence of Knoxville Creek and Eticuera Creek. The trail starts out on the left side of Eticuera Creek, then crosses the creek twice before turning north; this is Long Canyon. The trail follows the left side of the drainage and rolls through grassland as it gently climbs further up the canyon. The trail then winds past open Oaks and finally switches back to the right side of the creek before topping out on the ridge.

Take a moment to look down into the Fiske Creek drainage before following a primitive doubletrack up past an old stock pond and onto the north-south ridge that parallels Long Canyon.

Finally, the trail is all downhill from here. There are a couple fallen trees that block the trail and deep grass that can hide the trail at times. There is one old jeep trail that folds back on itself and eventually comes out at the Knoxville site. Stay left and the trail follows the ridge back down to Eticuera Creek. After the downhill the trail pops out just about a mile short of your car. Follow the trail you started on, back down to the steel post corral.
