The Hunter canyon Trail is one of those trails that you aren’t expecting too much of but when done you are mildly impressed. To get to the trail head in Hunter Canyon you take the Forest Service Road that is about 1.6 miles south of Miller Canyon Road on highway 92. Take this maintained dirt road about a mile and turn right (the only right turn) on to another dirt road to the end of the road (.25 miles) and the signed trail head. This trail climbs gradually at first then a little more aggressively (but never Steep) to a low saddle separating Hunter from Miller Canyon, about 900 feet of elevation gain in about a mile. The trail then drops into miller creek after another .5 miles. The trail is easy to follow and in spots a bit rocky but never anything too difficult. There are views of Miller and Carr Peak from the trail and once on the Saddle Miller Canyon. While on this trail check out the old abandon mine that is just a couple hundred yards off the trail. There is a fairly visible trail leading to this mine at the last crossing of the creek before you reach the saddle. There is a sign there that directs hikers as to the direction of the Hunter Canyon Trail; I guess some people were taking the trail to the mine instead of staying on the Hunter Canyon Trail. Also while on this trail check out Kelly Spring. There is water in a trough and behind a large bush or tree there is a 10 foot high tank filled to the brim with water and a float to keep the tank from overflowing.
