Bigfoot Trail ~ Section 8
Section 8 posed some problems this summer on my first attempt of a Bigfoot Trail thru-hike. I recently returned to attempt a new route into the Trinity Alps Wilderness—one which I hoped would not endure dense patches of poison oak while descending a steep-walled cataract canyon. While the Bear Creek Trail from Canyon Creek trail head is steep, it offers a fabulous entry point to work your way northward into the wilderness and beyond. I put together a short video to highlight some of the botanical and geological features of the re-routed route.
