Hanan/Sycan Campground & Trailhead

Sign at rustic Hanan Sycan Trailhead

Provides access to: Hanan Trail #142 which is open to hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking. The scenic Hanan Trail accesses roadless country between Coffeepot Springs and the confluence of Boulder Springs with the Sycan River. The trail cuts through a range of environments including stands of mature mixed conifers, open upland meadows, scab-rock flats, aspen groves, rim rocks, and dense forests of lodgepole pine. About half the length of the Hanan Trail follows the upper Sycan River, a designated National Wild and Scenic River.

The amenities at the trailhead include parking, room for trailer turnaround, one vault toilet, trail signage, and dispersed campsites. There is no garbage receptacle so remember to “pack it in and pack it out.” 

There is no potable water. Visitors need to pack plenty of water
