This is a 0.8 mile trail connecting the Prospectors Loop Trail #974 and the Payette Trail #970. For ease of travel, it is recommended that one hikes or bikes down this trail because of steepness. From Dagelma Trailhead take Prospectors Loop to the right and follow for 0.6 mile to the Sinns Bar Trail #972. The trail begins a short moderate descent through a large stand of ponderosa pine, offering views of Applegate Lake. The trail ends on the Payette trail, 0.8 mile from Latgawa campground. Sinns Bar is named after a Chinese prospector who mined the gravel bars along the Applegate River during the Gold Rush years of the 1850s and 1860s.
