Deafy Glade Trailhead

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Deafy Glade Trail is a popular trail for horseback riding and hiking. Located near (.8 mile) the Dixie Glade Campground which has some facilities for horse camping.

The trail begins nearby the Campground and drops into the South Fork of Stony Creek Canyon after passing through forests of oak and pine. At the crossing, are views of the sheer face of Deafy Rock which rises several hundred feet above the cascading stream waters. The trail ascends through Deafy Glade and switchbacks up through second growth forests to the wilderness boundary where it connects to the Summit Springs Trail. This trail passes through private land. The route through these parcels is rather vague, so follow the old blazes in the trees.
