Need to Know

Hang your food in this area, I had a bear get into my food back that was only tied off to a tree (Ursack). He wasn't interested in me.. just the food. ;)

Winter water crossings froze our toes... but was so fun.

Most of the trail is along quite a steep slope.

Water was flowing just fine in January! But it dries up in mid/late summer.

Dispersed camping is allowed without a permit. But please camp 200' from any stream or water source. And though designated fire rings are not required, be safe and use rocks to make your own fire ring.

The water is not too deep, but you'll cross 8 or 9 times.

Great to get lost in it all. Protect legs from thistles and thorns. Trail can be difficult to pick back up when crossing river. 6.4mi — 3h 20m
