General Description

With elevations beginning at 6,200 feet, late spring and early summer hiking is most favorable. Creek crossings should be of concern due to spring run-off. This trail is still in a primitive state with only a few signs to reassure visitors. This area has much to offer including: fishing in Kannah Creek which runs parallel to the trail, wildlife and plant identification, and expansive scenery. Trail is designated for hiker and horse travel only. No motorized vehicles are allowed
