Features: Birding — River/Creek — Views — Wildflowers

Runner Notes

This trail is good for trail running when maintained. Extensive poison oak makes the trail less inviting and more challenging to run, and takes away from the scenic views that would otherwise make this an excellent run.

Description

The South Fork Trail is a less-maintained singletrack dirt and gravel path that follows the South Fork Trinity River. The trail is high up on the ridge and does offer much access to the river. Spring wildflowers, birding, and solitude can be found on this trail. Call the Ranger Station before visiting to ask about the status of the trail due to frequent landslides. Consider wearing pants due to extensive poison oak.

Flora & Fauna

Douglas fir, madrone, cedars, blackberry, dogwood, hawks, eagles.
