Hendrys Creek Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A very long day hike or overnight backpack trip on a good trail through a scenic canyon offering access to The Table and Mount Moriah, in the Snake Range. The well-maintained Hendrys Creek Trail starts along the south side of the creek but soon crosses north to follow an old jeep road. The hillsides are open sage and grass, but the stream course is dense with willow, cottonwood, and a few stately ponderosa pine. Watch for occasional poison ivy along the first mile. As the trail gradually climbs, ponderosa pine become more common, and almost dominant for a while.
The singleleaf piñon that grows here is easily identified since it is the only pine with its needles growing singly instead of in bunches of two or more. The nuts produced by this tree were highly prized by Native Americans as a food source, and are still valuable today. They are also an important staple for wildlife, especially wood rats."
