Trail Overview

This fun side loop takes you away from the heavily trafficked Deception Creek Trail. It's narrow with lots of evidence of downed trees. There are deep potholes and puddles from the many springs leeching into the trail. The only camping noticed are small pullouts with old fire rings right along the trail. They could perhaps accommodate one to two rigs tops. It has a few rad views peeking between the trees, a few steep shelf sections, and some dense, lush forest sections. Some parts get very narrow, and there are a few deep ruts.
