Connector trail from the Hilltop Campground to the Fish Control Structure in Lynx Creek
O'Brian surfaces in the vicinity in the early 1900s. From constructing a reservoir at Fort Whipple to another O'Brian mining silver at Pine Flat. A western 1887 incident seems least related, yet intriguing.
The trail starts from FR683 (the road leaving the east side of the marina) about a third of the mile from the parking lot, there is a carsonite sign #313
From here the trail will gradually climb alongside the north side of a drainage. It will cross the drainage at the halfway point (potentially the only confusing spot in the trail), then proceed to climb on the southern side away from the drainage and around the hill until reaching the southernmost campground loop of Hilltop Campground, a short distance away from where the Homestead trail #305 crosses the campground road.
The trail makes a convenient connector between the Lynx Lake Recreation Trail #311 and the Homestead trail.
Near the northern end of the trail, on the other side of the road, is Lynx Creek and the Lynx Creek fish control structure. Water may be found here though likely there will be people with kids playing in the shallow water, and a better option is one of the potable drinking water spigots from the campground.
See the Lynx Lake Campground
There are fees to camp within the campground, to park at the main Recreation area parking lot near the lake, or to park at the marina parking lot. However there is some free parking along Walker Road, and further away such as near Sevenmile Trailhead which is free, but involves hiking a few miles to get here.
