Trail with many creek crossings!
by HAZ_Hikebot

From the Frazier Trailhead, the trail meanders over low ridges and through drainages until it drops into Cottonwood Canyon. Then it goes up the canyon and junctions with FR 341 that serves as the trail. Turn left onto FR 341 and travel south for approximately 1.5 miles. The trail takes off from the road to the south and continues to follow Cottonwood Canyon. After approximately 3 miles, the trail reaches the southern terminus at FR 83.
