Belknap Springs Trail (#833A)

Belknap Springs TH
This trail is a connector between Twin Pillars Trail (#832) and Wildcat Trail (#833). This trail is very scenic and provides excellent views of the Twin Pillars formation.  Additionally, there are groves of Western larch alongside the trail and down in the drainages below which would make for excellent dispersed camping spots.  
NOTE: This national forest has a long history of cattle and sheep grazing, and because of this if you decided to explore this wilderness in the summer months you may encounter livestock. Please use caution and do not approach the animals.
