Route Description for See Spring Trail
See Spring Trail is a fun adventure with varied scenery, ranging from the green-framed headwaters of the See Spring to the tall canyon mouth of See Canyon. This is an easier option if you want to enjoy the canyon without hiking all the way through, which is a more challenging adventure. Expect moderate traffic on this route.
If you do want to venture up the canyon, you can go a fair distance before that route gets more difficult. It’s not as steep or hard to follow until you get most of the way through the canyon.
From the trailhead, hike towards the canyon alongside Christopher Creek. The trail to the springs splits off to the right, and you’ll do some gentle climbing up to the headwaters. It’s quite nicely shaded for most of the hike, with the creek providing a mossy route to follow. At the headwaters, turn back and retrace your steps.
