Hikeing the second half of the Pioneer Trail will take visitors on a somewhat more challenging trek than the first half. Continuous elevation change is common along this portion of trail, but with the challenging terrain comes beautiful overlook vistas of Black Creek flowing beneath you. As with the first half, this section of trail offers hikers leveled foot beds and handmade foot crossings, as well as benches scattered throughout the trail for rest.
Hikers will find two camp zones, 1 on each segment, at approx. 2 and 4 miles in. These camp zones have ample area for a tent and are equipped with a picnic table and fire ring/grill combo.
