Keeton Trail (#815)

The trail is named for James J. Keeton who homesteaded two miles up Keeton Creek from its confluence with Mountain Creek in the late 1800s.

This trail provides access to Fry Trail (#816) and also Barnhouse Trail (#813).  The trail can be accessed via the Keeton Trailhead to the west and the Fry Trailhead to the east.

NOTE: The trail is extremely difficult to navigate from its western terminus at Keeton Trailhead to Fry Creek due to fallen trees and lack of trail maintenance.

Starting at the Fry Trailhead going north to Fry Spring and the junction with Barnhouse Trail (#813), the trail is navigable and pleasant.

Heading west from the junction with Barnhouse Trail (#813), the trail becomes difficult to follow just past Fry Creek and further west fallen log decks obscure the path of travel.
