Kinder Crossing Trail No. 19

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

This trail offers a picturesque access to East Clear Creek, crossing the creek near a moderately deep section. There are excellent opportunities for fishing and sightseeing. Expect the trail to be steep and rocky in places. Some hikers limit their trek to the three-quarter mile hike to the creek. Others, however, venture across the creek for the additional three-quarter mile section. No cairns or blazes mark the extended trail which heads downstream then turns east up ridge and connects with FR 137.

Motorized vehicles are not allowed on this trail. FR 95T is usually closed each winter during heavy snow season.
