This unmarked trail starts at the base of the Woods Canyon Lake dam.
The hike follows an unsigned fisherman’s path and crisscrosses the creek as it extends along grassy meadows between forest lined banks. It is an easy trek at the cool high elevation of 7460’. The trickling creek and shallow pools of water in the bottom of Chevelon Canyon, feed a lush forest teeming with plant and animal life. A potential add-on will be a loop trail that completely encircles Woods Canyon Lake.
Bring raingear as summer storms are likely.
