Description

This trail starts at the Trail 8 Trailhead, Parking, and Picnic Area. From here, the trail meanders for a short length before encountering a water crossing nearly first thing. After the crossing, continue along the canyon. Toward the end, the trail gets rough and rocky. If it is wet, those rocks can be incredibly slick, so be careful. The end of the trail greets you with another creek crossing before reaching the junction with Trail 2.

Muddy in the valleys but not too slick. As always, use caution at the water crossings and look out for falling icicles from high above! 7.2mi — 3h 30m
