Description

The trail begins at a large parking area at Porcupine Springs Campground. The trail accesses the headwaters of Little Fork, which is officially known as the Little Fork of the Third Fork of Rock Creek (quite a mouthful!) but all the signage understandable refers to the stream as Little Fork. The trail offers spurs to Trail Canyon Trail #241 and Third Fork Rock Creek Trail #004, providing trail users with ample opportunities to explore deep into the forests of the South Hills. At one point, the trail weaves through a narrow rocky canyon, which is pretty neat. There are some very interesting rock formations around the junction with Trail Canyon.

Flora & Fauna

Elk, deer, moose, porcupines, grouse, hawks, eagles, songbirds

The trail currently has lots of deadfall and snow, making it more difficult to run. There are also 4 Creek crossings right now. 1.9mi
