Need to Know
Restrooms are available at Porcupine Springs and Third Fork.
You access this trail from the bottom, from the campground at Porcupine Springs or via the Third Fork Rock Creek Trail #004
. You can access it from the top from Pike Mountain or Wahlstrom Hollow. The trail maintains a steady grade the entire way, making it a tough climb. However, the trail is well-maintained, and doesn't present many technical obstacles. It is also nice and wide, which helps a lot when the vegetation gets thick in late spring and summer. This segment provides a great way to get from the bottom of Little Fork up to the Pike Mountain/Elk Butte ridge. It is also nice and shady throughout much of the trail.
