Description

From the trailhead/parking lot, the trail very gradually starts to ascend alongside the Right Hand Fork of the Logan River. This is a beautiful section of the river with plenty of cold water flowing through it year round, and it is usually filled with beautiful green vegetation inside the river itself. During the fall, this is a gorgeous place to see the changing leaves as well.

Not far from the trailhead, a split in the trail occurs as the Maughan Hollow Trail goes off to the left and up, while the Right Hand Fork Trail continues alongside the river. Not far from this fork, the trail passes the first (of many) beaver dam, which creates a pretty cascade in front of it and pool behind it. There are several more of these beaver dams clearly visible from the trail as it continues to lazily ascend alongside the river through this beautiful forested area.

About a half a mile from the trailhead, the trail crosses the river via a small footbridge, and then reaches a new fork in the trail. The trail that goes off to the left (and through a gate) is the Rick's Canyon Trail #127, which later branches off into the Steel Hollow Trail. However, the Right Hand Fork Trail branches off to the left and continues to follow along the river.

At this point, the trail starts to ascend a little bit more as the river steepens slightly, and it also crosses a few talus piles (although the trail is well developed still) and crosses the river and a few dry creek beds a few times along the way toward the head of the Right Hand Fork. Along this section, there are several interesting rock formations above, as well as more beautiful autumn colors (in the fall)

Eventually, the trail forks one last time, with the main part of the trail going up (to the left) into the Willow Creek drainage along the Willow Creek Trail. The actual Right Hand Fork Trail continues to the right, although it quickly becomes overgrown and becomes indistinguishable.
