Trail Overview

From its junction with Kingston Canyon Road at 8,740' at Kinston Summit, Big Creek drops steeply into Big Creek Canyon and follows its namesake to the North down out of the Toiyabe mountains. Portions of this road are steep enough that a low range is needed for traction on climbs and for braking on descents. This gravel Forest Service road crosses the creek multiple times as it winds its way down the canyon. It is part of Section Four of the Nevada Backcountry Discovery Route. The higher elevations will likely be snowbound from mid-November to mid-May.
