Description

The White Chief Trail is a great, moderately strenuous trail that works its way through a rugged and beautiful landscape. It's equally good for day trips or overnight trips. The nighttime views from the canyon are amazing! The trail ends at a handful of abandoned mines that are tucked into the hill side and are fun to explore around. There are limited water sources until the end; bring a filter.
