Description

The Lower Lehman Creek Trail connects the Lower Lehman Creek Campground with the Upper Lehman Creek Campground. The trail trail starts at the entrance of the Lower Campground area next to the water faucet and information board. The trail is a narrow, singletrack dirt trail that can be filled with rocks in certain places.

The trail meanders its way uphill never far from Wheeler Drive. Views of Doso Doyabi can be seen in front of you. You can hear Lehman Creek off to the left of the trail.
