This trail begins just behind the North Shore Campground on Hospital Rd. off of Hwy. 173. The trail descends along seasonal Little Bear Creek to FS Road 2N26Y, intersecting the road about 1 mile above Splinter’s Cabin Trailhead. The seven year drought and Old Fire in 2003 took its toll on the trees along the trail, giving hikers an opportunity to view post fire effects and the changes as a result of the drought and bark beetle infestation.
