This is the upper end of the historic Napias Creek Trail which has become an atv/utv/jeep trail. The trail is not shown on travel maps as open to motor vehicles but that doesn't appear to be keeping them out. MUCH erosion on this trail is occurring from that motorized use and there is a severe need for drain dips and some kind of closure to prevent illegal use. There were new federal mining claim signs along the trail. There is a dangerous failing log bridge across the trail which diverts the creek down the trail in high water. There is a historic fallen down log cabin along the trail with associated historic mining activity. There was only one down log in this section of trail and that was easy to get over in August 2019.

Access Info

Access at the upper end is off the Ridge Road with a wooden sign saying Napias Creek Trail at the Junction.
