This backpack along the Little Minam River leads from the Moss Springs/Horse Ranch Trail to the confluence of the Little Minam and Minam Rivers, and to Lower Minam River Trail. The easiest way to reach the junction where the Lower Little Minam River Trail, on foot, begins is from Moss Springs Trailhead. From the junction with Moss Springs/Horse Ranch Trail, the Lower Little Minam River Trail traverses to the northwest and drops slightly. When we walked this section in early summer, there was a bear ripping apart a log below the trail. The bear was looking for grubs in the rotten wood and left at our approach.
