Trail Overview

This route takes you from the bottom of the Lost River Valley up around an additional thousand feet to the base of Bell Mountain. The canyon could be named white rock canyon as the rock and shale which cover the trail have a white hue to them. The trail goes through a valley with Bell Mountain Creek running through it. Be sure to check out some of the abandoned cabins in the area right off the trail. There is also smaller dispersed tent camping sites along the way.
