Route Description for Haffner Creek Trail
Even though route finding along this hike can be a bit challenging, it is all part of the fun along the Haffner Creek Trail. Be sure to wear proper hiking boots and bring a GPS in order to stay on the correct route. Setting out from the trailhead at the Marble Canyon Campground, make your way southeast along Haffner Creek as you pass through the dense forests below Vermillion Peak and Mount Haffner. At this point, you will need to rely on your route finding skills, as the trail becomes poorly marked. Continue along the winding banks of the creek, as they approach the imposing rock formations of Beatrice Peak and Mount Ball while climbing uphill through the rugged terrain. Reaching the end of the trail, you will have some nice views of the dramatic mountain peaks and surrounding forests that help to make up for the initial forested parts of the trail. From here, you can turn back and retrace your footsteps towards the trailhead where you began the adventure.
