The trail is not used very often, and is overgrown in many places. Pants or leg coverings are very much a necessity, since stinging nettle likes to grow along the trail in some places. Additionally, routefinding is often necessary. The trail can be difficult to follow, and you need to know where you are headed in case to lose it. A map and GPS are very important in a place as remote and unforgiving as the Jarbidge Wilderness.
This is a remote trail in a remote range. Access to the area requires clearance and sometimes 4-wheel drive, depending on road conditions.
The north end of the trail begins at Robinson Hole, and can be accessed via the Robinson Hole Trail. Alternatively, users can access different portions of the trail using routes such as the Three Day Creek Trail, or Slide Creek Trail #23
, among several others. Slide Creek is probably the most frequently used route to access this trail. The trail follows the East Fork of the Jarbidge, all the way to a high pass above 9300 feet.
Once the divide is crossed, the trail heads into Camp Creek for a little bit before hopping a ridge and dropping down into the East Fork of Marys River. The trail comes to a junction at the confluence of the east fork and main fork of Marys River. Leading north is the Marys River Trail, and continuing south is the East Fork trail. The trail ends at a jeep road at the south end of the wilderness area. Access to the south end requires high clearance and 4 wheel drive and is a challenging road to negotiate.
