This trail enters The Brothers Wilderness. Hike through a remote canyon area called the Valley of the Silent Men. The Brothers were named in 1856 by George Davidson of the U.S. Coast Survey after the Fauntleroy brothers - Edward (South peak) and Arthur (north peak) who were brothers of Constance and Ellinor Fauntleroy (the latter was fiancée of George Davidson), for whom he named Mt Ellinor and Mt Constance. The trail is maintained to The Brothers base camp. Only experienced climbers should continue on from the end of The Brothers Trail. Consult climbing books for climbing routes on The Brothers.

This hike enters forest with lush, green, mosscovered valley with access to a small intermittent stream.
