The Ryan Cabin Stickpin Trail actually refers to two trails, the Ryan Trail and the Stickpin Trail. This area was logged 30 years ago for Mountain Pine Beetle control. There are reports of washouts on the Stickpin Trail. Water is accessible along the Stickpin Trail and in places along the Ryan Trail. Watch for wet spots. There are great views at the top of the trails. The Stickpin Trail rises more gently at first with a fairly steep climb near the Kettle Crest. These two trails make a nice day hike loop to the Kettle Crest and back.

Kettle Crest from the south is in very bad shape leading up to Stickpin. Stickpin is extremely overgrown. This was the only time I have been down it so I don't know how it normally is, but it made the descent slow and tedious. The bottom is a bit better. We were going to loop back up Ryan Cabin, but ended up taking Albian Rd back to our car because we figured the rest of the trail would be in just as poor of shape.
