The northern segment of this trail is also known as the Lick Creek Connector #3096. It is the best place to start when hiking the Lick Creek Trail #3070 as it starts at a trailhead shared with North Fork Umatilla River Trail #3083. Hike about 100' from the trailhead to the first creek, The Connector starts there and transverse the slope NW about 1 mile to connect with Lick Creek Trail #3070. The southern section has been poorly maintained and not passable. You can walk or drive the road to the Buck Creek Trail #3073 trailhead.
