“This is an important little link across the top to connect trails.”
— Lance Buck
There are only two ways to link the Fiske Creek Trail
to Long Canyon Trail
. This one eliminates the bushwhacking. From the Long Canyon Trail
side, look for the remains of an old jeep trail heading north from a 'T' intersection above the large pond at the top of the drainage.
The route is pretty vague at the south end, but becomes clear once you crest the ridge. There is only one way through the brush.
From the North, don't miss the fork that peals off on the right if you are heading down hill from Fiske Creek Road
toward Blue Ridge Trail
. The path doubles back up the ridge shortly after leaving Fiske Creek Road
The only other crossing I can find is to follow the divide East toward the Helipad at the End of Fiske Creek Road
