Overview

This short spur trails serves as a connector between the Minong Ridge Trail and Little Todd Campground. The half mile trail descends from Minong Ridge Trail to the water's edge at Little Todd Harbor, and the descent is quite steep. The trail crosses some marshy lowlands on the approach to Little Todd Harbor. Be prepared for soggy socks! There is also a very challenging log crossing. Trekking poles are a near necessity here.

Little Todd Harbor Camp is a beautiful, secluded campsite. There are only 4 sites here, but they are all good, with easy access to the harbor. This is a great place for a swim/shower/laundry if you are spending the night! Sunsets here are famously beautiful.
