Trail Highlights: The trail begins at the lushly forested Lewis Canyon Campground and follows the creek bed. Trail gains and loses elevation regularly, alternating between rocky and forested areas. Although you will be hiking through the 2002 Rodeo burn area, mother nature has begun her rejuvenation process. Later you will come to the 1996 Cottonwood burn area where you can appreciate how time has healed the landscape. Distant views are now visible as a result of sparser vegetation. This trail, though challenging, is rewarding in its diversity.
