Like the First Fork Trail, this trail provides good hiking in the late spring through mid-fall. The trail stays next to the stream most of the way up, in the shade of big fir, spruce, and aspen trees. The trail gradually climbs the first 2½ miles and then goes up a series of switchbacks, and meets up with the Missionary Ridge Trail. As with nearly all water in the Forest, it is advisable to use a filter to prevent problems with Giardia. Fall colors on this trail are spectacular and sightings of large game animals such as elk and mule deer are not uncommon. An overnight loop trip using the Missionary Ridge Trail and First Fork Trail is possible.
