Dark Canyon is often explored as a short day hike from the Erickson Springs Trailhead. From there the trail follows along the north side of Anthracite Creek, entering almost immediately into one of the most scenic parts of Dark Canyon. Anthracite Creek is a fast-flowing stream that is very popular with fly fishermen, and Erickson Springs Campground is conveniently located just a few hundred feet from the trailhead. The walk up Anthracite Creek makes a fine alternative to the hike described below if a shuttle to the Horse Ranch Park Trailhead cannot be arranged. If a shuttle can be arranged, however, I recommend beginning your hike at Horse Ranch Park. The total distance between the two trailheads is 13.6 miles, which may be too long for some, but the trail is an easy, mostly downhill path. Furthermore you probably won’t see anyone else until you reach Anthracite Creek.
