Trail Overview

This well-maintained out-and-back trail is a pure treat to drive. Unfortunately, there was a large wildfire that swept through the canyon. But the views it left behind are spectacular. Rocky hillsides, waterfalls and creeks flowing. All these beautiful sights would have been hidden by the dense forest that used to be here. The trail ends a the trailhead for the Lodge Pole Hiking trail, which is great for equestrian and foot traffic. The trailhead has a decent equestrian staging area and plenty of trailer parking. A few miles before the trail's end is a small turnout. To one's left there is parking for a few vehicles looking to hike Nome Peak or the Dunham Creek hiking trails. There is no horse Trailer parking at this pullout. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the numerous stunning waterfalls along the way. If you are looking for a spot to disperse camp, there are a few great options on some offshoots off the main trail. It depends on how close to the water you want to be. There is no Verizon cell service on this route, so be sure to plan ahead.

Difficulty

Overall the trail is in good shape, with a few rough sections of potholes. It is generally just wide enough for two cars to pass. But some spots are more narrow, needing a pullout.
