New River Divide Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Nearly guaranteed solitude and incredible scenery are this loop’s main attractions. The only time the southern part of the New River Divide Trail sees much traffic is during deer hunting season in late September into early October, with the area virtually deserted during the rest of the year. The same is true of the trail up Whites Creek to Bear Wallow Meadows and Hunters Camp. The section from Rattlesnake Camp down to Morrison Cabin is traveled more often since this is the main route between New River and North Fork Trinity River, but you still won’t have to share the trail with many others. However, the 6 miles along the North Fork Trail is a different story—that trail is sometimes referred to as a freeway by people who like to be left alone."
