Map + Directions
This two-lane, paved trail connects all the campgrounds on the east side of Union Valley Reservoir from Jones Fork Campground to Wench Creek Campground. Parking is available at the campgrounds except Lone Rock and Azalea Cove. These two campgrounds offer a special kind of quiet camping experience since access is only by foot, bike or boat. Beautiful views of Union Valley and the surrounding forest are present all along the trail. A trail bridge 109 feet long crosses Big Silver Creek and a 40 foot bridge crosses Tells Creek. Interpretive signs along the trail tell the story of the use and development of water resources in Union Valley.
