A short connector trail near the head of Jack's Canyon
From the road, head downcanyon (northeast) on the north side of the canyon streambed. You start in a nice meadow and make your way alongside the rocky creek bed. The trail is generally flat and you may find evidence of elk in the area. Towards the end you will see a large cairn marking an older trail that heads uphill off to the north (more research is needed regarding this trail), or else can continue east, crossing a small branch of the canyon on level ground over a small berm to reach the Arizona Trail. Several other opportunities for trails to explore Jack's canyon are easily accessed nearby.
Jack's Canyon in this area is typically dry, though very early in the year it might contain light flow from snowmelt.
There is evidence of camping near the trailhead, and also when you reach the Arizona trail there are other options to camp in the area, though since there is typically not water in the area it doesn't seem that popular.
This hike is listed as One-Way.
