“This trail provides access to Sucker Gap, Sucker Creek Trail #1237, and the Boundary Trail #1207.”— Bruce Hope
This trail is usually closed by snow between November and May.
This trail is entirely within the Red Buttes Wilderness Area but it starts in California and ends in Oregon. Sucker Creek Trail #906 leaves the Steve Fork Trail #905 about 0.8 miles from the Steve Fork Trailhead, and climbs to Sucker Creek Gap on the Siskiyou Crest. Here it junctions with the Boundary Trail #1207 and the Sucker Creek Trail #1237.
Lake 5148, which is just southwest of the #906, is a great camping spot. The Sucker Creek Shelter, which is on the west side of the crest along the #1237, is a refurbished open-sided shelter than is open to all runners and backpackers.
