partially burned in the Dixie Fire 2021,

A short hike into the canyon near the headwaters of Butte Creek. 

This is the lowest elevation of the High Country hikes, and many a hiker reacquaints with the mountains here, as the heat builds in the Valley far below.

In 2021 the trail became accessible (road snow-free, trail snow-free except for a few small patches) the same day the Humbug Weather Station snow water content went to zero.


This hike is in Lassen National Forest; owned by the public, managed by Lassen National Forest. Backpacking welcomed; campfires welcomed except late Summer & early Fall.
