the Stryen Creek bridge the next four kilometers of trail are open boulder
strewn pine flats giving away to moister Douglas fir forest with more
undergrowth. A campsite is located at about the 2-kilometer point and
another just before the Devil's Staircase.
There are two talus (large rock) slope crossings, the first one is 300
meters long giving way to large boulders and an open area with a seasonal
creek that floods over trail in spring. The second talus slope is about
200 meters long to the TeePee campsite.
The Earl Creek crossing is a bridge made of two logs and a handrail.
The trail is good over the flats until about 12-kilometer where trail
is a rocky surface and follows closely along southern bank of Stein
River. Yet another talus slope which requires careful footing, then
an open clearing and a small creek to cross. Cable crossing (over Stein
River) to be used by one person at a time.
The Stein River Floodplain in spring promotes the ascent of Snake Bluffs.
Use caution traversing the loose material covering the steep rock sections
of Snake Bluffs. When you get back down to the floodplain the wet area
continues for approximately 300 meters, stay at the foot of the hill
and watch your footing. Fir and birch are prominent in this area. Ponderosa
Creek has two crossings; one is a two-log crossing the second a single,
flattened log with a handrail. The campsite is just west of the creek
This section of trail is boggy and thickly vegetated. Cross 300 meters
of talus slope west of Swamp Bluffs. Burnt Cabin Creek has a four-log
bridge crossing. Burnt Cabin Creek to trail junction starts off rocky
then a section of swamp; next an easy section of trail. Take south trail
to Cottonwood crossing and campsite, the north trail goes to Blowdown
More blowdowns to Mid-Canyon Camp where you overlook Avalanche Creek,
upward to High View Camp. Some side-hilling after High View Camp then
downhill to Island Camp and a short distance to #3 Cable Crossing.
