On Saturday, August 2nd you can get into the Siskiyous yourself on this 2-4 mile day hike, just the right distance for new visitors to the wilderness who are beginner to moderate level hikers. Participants will enjoy beautiful high views high above the South Fork Smith River from the historic Kelsey Trail, and if the group has the energy, they can see the Buck Creek Shelter along the banks of the South Fork.
The Kelsey Trail was created in the 1800s to connect the port in Crescent City with mining operations from the coast to Fort Jones, near Yreka, in order to exchange supplies and the minerals being extracted. Now, the South Kelsey Trail provides a great opportunity to enjoy the Siskiyou Wilderness with a day hike or multi-day backpacking adventures.
This is a free event.
