Middle Fork Trail to Panther Creek

Middle Fork Trail to Panther Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The sunny Middle Fork Trail offers fine scenery with good views of the Great Western Divide, Moro Rock, Castle Rocks, Alta Peak, and the river canyon. After an exposed 2.8-mile hike, the shady grotto of Panther Creek is a welcome respite above a dramatic, 100-foot waterfall.

Before the Buckeye Flat Campground opens, usually in late March, you will have to walk an additional 1.3 miles on the road to access the trailhead. In the foothills zone, hikers should be on the lookout for poison oak, ticks, and rattlesnakes."

"This path takes you to a shady campsite beside a tranquil pool with a pretty cascade. When it is open, you can drive 0.5 mile on the paved Buckeye Flat Road to the Buckeye Flat Campground. Go left (east) onto a dirt road just before you reach the camp, and follow this road for 1.3 miles to a small parking area. This will cut the hike down to 5.4 miles. Start your journey by crossing the Generals Highway using the crosswalk, and visit some Monachi bedrock mortars and an interpretive sign on the south side of the road to Buckeye Flat Campground. On the north side of this road is Hospital Rock, along with a stone stairway that leads up to a small viewing platform." Read more
