“One of the best trails for summiting Mt. Lukens.”— John McKinney
After crossing the river, the trail very quickly begins to ascend the trail which parallels the canyon for a little under a half mile. The trail veers away from the canyon and begins to climb switchbacks up a ridge line. There is not a lot of tree cover along this trail as fires have burned the slopes of the mountain. At 3.3 miles, the trail is joined by Sister Elsie Trail from the west; above this, the grade of Stone Canyon Trail begins to ease. At 3.7 miles, the trail ends when it meets Haines Canyon Spur.

Poodle-dog bush is abundant. This plant causes a rash similar to poison oak or poison ivy when it touches skin. Wear long sleeves and pants if you hike in the area.
