Trail Overview

This trail was developed from old railroad tracks, making it perfect for various activities. Plenty of primitive camping sites along the river. There are two old railroad tunnels and multiple railroad bridges that you can cross and will be able to hike, bike, drive, or ride to. There is plenty of swimming access along the river and multiple places to fish and kayak. There is access to multiple waterfalls along this trail and on secondary trails. Good Overlanding opportunities also as some of the sites are accessible by vehicle. Pack out what you bring in and leave it better than you found it.


Mostly flat until you have reached designated areas on trail. Once reached it is highly recommended that only 60" wide or less UTV, ATV, Dirtbike, or hiking continue.


Mostly repurposed railroad grade trail
