TH may have cowpie hell. TH has no shade, small area with limited parking. Trail goes across plateau on old closed road to the edge of the canyon, then a single track down to the creek. Not much travel is possible along the creek as heavy brush and beaver dam activity limits hiking.

I'm giving this a 1 star because of the directions. We couldn't even make it to the trail. There are no road signs because you have to go off on dirt roads. (If we were even going the right way). So that means the directions included go 3 miles and turn right then 4 miles and turn left. We weren't ever sure we were going the right way. Additionally because we didn't realize this wasn't a normal trail with a trailhead our ford focus couldn't make it on the off road trails and we had to turn around. May try again and bring an appropriate vehicle but was rather disappointed.

Great short pack down in to the canyon. Good if you want to just get a way for a day or two. The actual trail name is Parker's trail. There are a couple if other trails in the area I just did not have time for them hopefuls another day.
