The first 2 miles is following an old logging or forestry road to the canyon. Fairly uninspiring except for the old cemetery along the way. it is well kept with many hand carved stones from the 1800's. Once into the canyon, there is a creek crossing to intersect with 209. if the water is very low, one may be able to step stones across, otherwise, wading will be required here. Very scenic once in the canyon.

Be sure to note that the little leg back to 201 where 209 intersects with 206 is an unmarked creek crossing. there is currently (11/09/17) a smallish log spanning the creek. thin and very wobbly. Be very careful crossing!
