Profile Explained

  • (1) Intersetion with North Loop Trail
  • (2) Carbon River camp near supension bridge
  • (3) Dick Creek camp
Starting from Ipsut Creek camp (unless the Carbon River has destroyed the road again necessitating an additional 3 -5 miles hiking) the trail follows the river with a gentle slope. After crossing the suspension bridge the trail steepens. At just over a mile the trail smoothes out and enters forest near Dick Creek Camp. The final section of the trail flattens out into parkland.
