This is in the heart of bear country, so bring bear spray and know how to use it in case of an encounter.

Description [Suggest Changes]

This trail follows along the Dearborn River. The trail follows the grade of the river about 40 feet above it. It's a sight to see in early spring with all the snowmelt. Also, it can be great for a hot summer day as there are many swimming holes along the way. The trail connects with the CDT midway through, and continues onward to reach the headwaters of the Dearborn River near Halfmoon Peak.
