Overview

Features: -none- [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

This trail begins at Warren Peak highway, and heads down an embankment to connect to the Forest Service road. It meanders down a short two track section of road to a creek crossing point of the road. This is Houston Creek; take the left.

It meanders down along the stream, with summer cattle moving the trail on a yearly basis. It contains multiple rocky sections and stream crossings. At one point it's difficult for the GPS to get satellites due to the cliff sections bordering the trail. Water has been found to flow at least 4-5 ft high during spring. Later in summer and fall, the stream skips in and out of the ground creating the rocky stream crossings.

Animals known to be habituating the area: mountain lions, cattle, foxes, coyotes, and owls.
