Description
Waypoints (0)

Starting at the southern trailhead, the trail heads north through the high desert before dipping into the lush pine/fir forests. The trail generally descends with one or two short and mild climbs. The trail has two small stream crossings which are generally where you'll find the climbs as well. After May, these streams are pretty easily jumped across. This trail offers wonderful views of Rock Creek Canyon from start to finish.

Due to nursing an injury we only did 2.5 miles in and 2.5 out so we didn’t over do it. The section we did was very pretty. We plan on doing the whole hike in the future maybe earlier in the summer so it won’t be as dried out. We didn’t see any other hikers so that was nice. We did however see two elk!!

Great trail with amazing views. We started at the end of this map across the street from Third Fork campground. We planned on hiking up to the top, then heading back down, stopping to camp along the way. Couldn’t quite make it to the top as the trail snow on the trail was getting pretty thick. We made it a little over 7 miles before deciding to turn around. Didn’t find any great places to camp as most of the are is pretty steep. We did see a couple moose. The trail is fairly overgrown in quite a few places, some downed trees here and there, a few stream crossings. Even with conditions being the way they were, it was well worth the hike.

It really was a nice walk. We only went half way and that section was shady and pleasant.

I have been on this trail many times. It’s not too challenging to hike with some inclines and water crossings. This trail can get very overgrown at times and does have a lot of loose rocks to be cautious about. There are several overlook areas with incredible views. I have run into a rattlesnake on this trail so do be aware of your surroundings. Overall this is a great hiking trail.
