Description

Big Bluff Trail leads out about a tenth of a mile before coming out on the face of Big Bluff. The trail crosses on a shelf of the bluff, which has a great view of the valley but which is narrow at points. Take caution if crossing it. From here it is a rough trail that continues down the ridgeline to intersect the Old River Trail.

Along the bluff, there are veautiful view of the mountains and river below, and you'll be Hiking along a gorgeous rock wall about 500 feet from the bottom. This is a must-see if you are in the area.
