Trail Overview

This trail runs along a creek bed, so depending on the time of the year, you will get different depths of water. The deepest you get is at the beaver damn at the end, which this track bypassed. The trail is narrow! You will get pin stripes from the brush in the creek bed. That being said, it is a fun trail to do at least once. Recommend using SXS or 2-4 door Jeep or something similar in size. 4 Low is helpful due to the rocks you drive over in the creek bed. There are camping areas at the beginning of the trail. You access this trail off Silver City Road. You turn at east at the only creek crossing at the bottom of the canyon.

History
