Map Includes: Wilson River Trail, Kings Mountain Trail, Elk Mountain Trail
The Wilson River trail traverses steep, rugged canyons alongside SR6.
The 500' elevation change from the upper to lower TH includes several significant hillside traverses, as the trail crosses the headwaters of Lester and Ryan creeks.
Elk Mountain and (especially) Kings Mountain trail offer strong hikers the opportunity to explore the rugged terrain of a basalt ridgeline, with scenic valley views.
Campgrounds at Elk Creek, Jones Creek and Keenig Creek also provide the major trail locations.
Mosquitoes are ferocious in this area until August. Feel free to try the natural repellents, and avoid drinking carbonated drinks prior to riding, but Deet 100 may be the only protection from 'the swarm'. Expect some trailside poison oak and prepare as needed. Try using Tecnu before the ride.
