New River Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This journey into the heart of the “Green Trinities” is dramatically different from the classic hikes in the better-known eastern part of the wilderness. Rather than the high alpine lakes, granite peaks, and glacier-gouged valleys that draw numerous visitors to the east side, the west side of the wilderness is a land of thick-forested mountains and wild river canyons where few people venture. In the Green Trinities, elevations tend to be a little lower (and temperatures a little warmer), wildlife is more wild, and trails a lot less traveled. Solitude reigns supreme. Note: this area was nearly all burned in the 1999 Megram Fire. Highlights: Hike through wild canyon country to the fascinating historic mining district."
