All the campground’s sites offer decent privacy. Its ten walk-in sites—particularly numbers 15, 16, 17, and 18—offer the most solitude. There are many ways to enjoy the canyon. Trails lead from the canyon rim to the stream, and seasonally, before water levels drop, you can paddle the stream, which features a couple of Class II or III rapids. Perhaps the best way to experience the canyon from the bottom up, though, is to bike the 62-mile Pine Creek Trail. Declared by some to be one of the ten best rail-trails in the entire country, it’s a limestone gravel pathway that leads past rock outcrops and waterfalls.
