Trail shared by Bruce Hope

The shortest access from a road to Wiley Camp on the the upper Buck Canyon Trail #1046.

Bruce Hope

Features River/Creek · Wildflowers

This trail enters the Rogue-Umpqua Divide Wilderness and the usual federal wilderness area regulations and restrictions apply here. Practice Leave No Trace (LNT) backcountry skills and ethics. Camp 100 feet from fragile areas; bury human waste at least 200 feet from water, trails, and campsites. This trail is usually closed by snow between November and May.

Need to Know

There is usually year-round water in Buck Creek but carry your own supply anyway. Just below (southeast) of the divide, the trail enters a large meadow and may get lost in the vegetation. Keep to the left (east) side of the meadow here, and look for the trail where it enters the forest below the meadow.

Description

The trailhead for the Wiley Camp Trail is on a doubletrack dirt road that is accessible by passenger car (if driven carefully). From this primitive trailhead (no amenities and limited off-road parking), this short trail climbs easily to the ridge overlooking the West Fork of Muir Creek and then descends steeply for 600 feet to cross the creek, pass through Wiley Camp, and end at a junction with the Buck Canyon Trail #1046. From here, it is a short run down-canyon to seasonal wildflower displays in Hummingbird Meadows or a short run up-canyon to the huge wildflower meadows created by Devils Slide, an ancient landslide.
