The Three Forks trail is 4.7 miles long. It begins at Diamond Rock Campground and ends at Forest Service Road 249. The trail is very lightly travelled and not recommended more than a mile or so above the campground, and may be overgrown and difficult to follow. Avoid the special wildlife closure area at FR 249 well-marked by signs - this area is closed to all entry, and violations are punishable. The area is easily avoided by following the trail along an old road that passes to the south and west of the closure.
This hike is listed as One-Way.
