The combined routes of Kirk's Fork #830 and Boundary Trail #835 are designated as the Anderson Butte National recreation Trail. The trail follows Box Sing Creek and Kirk's Fork Creek to Anderson Butte, then follows the Meadow Creek divide to American River-Selway Fall's Rd. The highest point along the trail is Anderson Butte as 6847' elevation. The trail traverses stands of timber over much of its length with some meadows along the way northwest of Martin Meadows on the Divide Ridge. From Anderson Butte northwest along the Divide Ridge, the route follows an old jeep trail with wide clearance. This route has not been used as a road for many years and the tread is reduced to trail width in many places. Water is available at several places along the Kirk's Fork Section of the route and at Anderson Butte Spring about .2 miles south of the Lookout.
