This trail is reached from the West Fork Road (FDR 535) by turning onto FDR 726 (through the Fish Creek Ranch gate) and continuing another 1½ miles to the Fish Creek State Wildlife Area. The first 1½ miles of the trail follows Fish Creek,and takes you to National Forest land. After the trail crosses Little Fish Creek, it begins to skirt Black Mesa. It is a consistent, gentle climb around to Willow Creek, which flows in from the east, with the trail swinging around to the north to the 8½-mile mark. From there, the trail climbs out of the canyon, up the side of Black Mesa, to FDR #404, which will take you to FDR #611 and Dunton. As the name implies, there is usually good trout fishing in Fish Creek.

Gate Policy: If a gate is closed upon arrival, leave it closed after you go through. If it is open, leave it open. Leaving a closed gate open may put cattle in danger. Closing an open gate may cut them off from water. Please be respectful, leave gates as found.
