Box Canyon and Nickel Creek Trail

Box Canyon and Nickel Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Box Canyon is one of the most unusual features in the park, and Nickel Creek Camp is a rustic backcountry retreat perfect for kids’ first backpacking adventure.

The trail explores the rim of the deep chasm of Box Canyon before swinging out through the forest for a woodland ramble into the Nickel Creek valley along this short section of the Wonderland Trail. You can continue on the trail beyond Nickel Camp, climbing to Indian Bar."
