The trail starts out on the paved FR 245 and then becomes an easy, 1-rated maintained road. Left Hand Fork Canyon has gently sloping walls dotted with pinyon and juniper as well as an unusually pretty floor. The trail follows along the stream past many cottonwoods and several scenic camping spots. Special Attractions: Gray Cliff Spring; Spectacular fall scenery; Numerous backcountry camping sites along the stream that provide easy access to the area’s many 4WD trails. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions.
