Yellow Hammer Gap Trail #49


The Yellow Hammer Gap Trail is an interior trail, connecting with the Nichols Cove and Ike Branch Trails.  The Benton MacKaye Trail follows its entire length.  Starting at Nichols Cove in the Joyce Kilmer Slickrock Wilderness, this trail heads northeasterly over many small knobs and stream crossings.  This trail does not actually reach Yellow Hammer Gap, having been rerouted to accommodate the Ike Branch and Hangover Lead Trails in the gap area.
