This trail was formerly a forest road that is now closed to vehicles. Camp in the meadow at the end of this trail and plan to hike into the Siskiyou Wilderness on the Clear Creek Trail, Raspberry Lake Trail, El Capitan Lake Trail, or the Twin Valley Trail for spectacular mountain top views and excellent trout fishing. The trailhead is located 2.5 hours northeast of Crescent City.
