Description

From the parking area, head uphill passing through a narrow canyon with a bubbling steam. Take in the views of the cliffs, trees, and water before arriving at a forest service road. Head up the road until you are able to take a hard right hand turn and follow the logging road/trail/cattle path up to a connection with D Loop of the Big Hill Trail System. From here you can add as many miles as you desire.

Flora & Fauna

Pine, birch, aspen, deer, turkey, and if you are lucky, mountain lion.
