Trail Overview

The difficult portion of this trail is a rugged, deep water crossing. It can be dangerous and too deep to cross in the spring. There is good camping at Camp Dick Campground as well as some trailside sites along the way. Trail is open from June 15 to October 15.

Difficulty

Difficult. Most of the route is easy to moderate, but the stretch between Waypoints 02 and 03 requires very high ground clearance. Deep mud possible when wet. Several water crossings, including possible very deep crossing at Coney Flats.
