Miners and pack animals followed this trail in the late 1800's. The trail passes through groves of redwood trees and several small picturesque creeks. As you climb to vista points high above the South Fork of the Smith River, notice the dramatic changes in vegetation. The trail ends at the confluence of Craig's Creek and the South Fork of the Smith River.
