This section is one of the cruxes of the entire Trail 89. Expect sustained, rocky, technical climbing and descending with some mandatory hike-a-bike sections. There are stunning views of the Harney Range looking south across the Battle Creek drainage. This section of the Centennial Trail is a worthy outing for the hardcore looking to test their mettle...

Access Info

Park at either the Flume Trail Head located near the Sheridan Lake south boat launch off Calumet Road or at the Samelius Trail Head located on the north side of US 16 about three miles east of Three Forks.
