Hangman Trail

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

The Hangman Trailhead & FR 86 provides access to this trail. This trail traverses areas affected by the 2002 Rodeo-Chediski Fire. Visitors travel about 1 mile along an old 2-track road to the historic cemetery for which the trail is named. Be sure to follow the blue diamonds and stay to the right as other logging roads branch off to the left. A blue diamond with an arrow indicates the left-hand turn to the cemetery.  The main trail continues up a rocky 2-track to FR300 east of the Black Canyon Rim Campground.

The Cemetery contains the grave sites for Jamie Stott, Jim Scott, and Billy Wilson. Three men lynched by vigilantes during the Pleasant Valley Feud.
