Simmons Peak Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is an infrequently used trail with an off-trail route to a high peak and multiple points of four-wheel-drive access.

From the Dorsey Creek Trailhead, the singletrack trail (757) climbs for 0.2 mile along the left side of the creek before turning right (south). It continues parallel to the crest of the range for 3.5 miles until it descends at a spur trail southwest to the North Decker Creek road access. You may also continue south on the trail and descend to the four-wheel-drive road just north of the North Rock Creek Road access."
