A very scenic, gated hike along the Cranberry River with access to fishing, wilderness hiking, and backcountry camping.

Features -none-

Family Friendly This is a relatively flat, scenic hike that provides access to excellent fishing and wilderness hiking as well as backcountry camping sites and a series of shelters.

Description

This scenic section of FSR #76 starts at the Cranberry Campground and follows the Cranberry River past several backcountry shelters, ending just beyond the North Fork shelter. If combined with FSR #102, it provides relatively easy access to the Cranberry Glades and Nature Center. This is an excellent hike for families, with many other activities along the way, such as fishing and wilderness hiking.
