Trail Overview

Youngs Creek is an easy road that any vehicle can do in good weather conditions. There are a couple of water sources along your drive, one of them being a very dirty but pretty pond where you'll find flowers lining the road. The views while driving are also very pretty, peeking through the trees. If you are looking for a dispersed campground that you can reserve for a large group, there are two at the beginning of this trail on US Forest Service Road 21 (Rigdon). One is called Secret Campground and the other is called Campers Flat; you can reserve on recreation.gov. If you are looking for free spots, there are a couple of camp spots along this forest trail. One of them is large enough for a big group. There is little to no cellphone service in this area. If you need reception, the Dairy Queen near Chevron offers WiFi. Stop for breakfast or a full menu all day. Remember to always pack it in and pack it out, tread lightly, and keep our trails open!
