Tincup Trail #1117

  

View a mixed hardwood-conifer forest along a low elevation rolling trail with access to Mislatnah Trail #1119 and Upper Chetco Trail #1102 and the Kalmiopsis Wilderness. A steep, narrow trail provides access to the Chetco River across Boulder Creek. Another portion of the Tincup Trail (Illinois Valley Ranger District) which does not connect to this segment but does connect to the Kalmiopsis Rim Trail #1124, is located at higher elevation on the eastside of the Wilderness.

This trail is located in an area that has burned in the Biscuit (2002) and Chetco Bar (2017) Fires. Although Forest Service trail crews and partner groups have been repairing and maintaining many of the affected trails following the fires, visitors should take into consideration (because of the substantially increased risk of fire-killed snags falling) that travel and camping may be more difficult and require greater concern for safety.

At a Glance

Current Conditions: Visitors to the Kalmiopsis Wilderness should be advised that trail conditions may vary, depending on the level of maintenance performed in the years after the Biscuit (2002), Chetco Bar (2017) and Klondike (2018) Fires. Due to the scales of these fires, and the rugged and remote conditions in the Kalmiopsis, trail work, while ongoing, has not been performed on all the trails within the fire perimeters. Visitors may find downed trees across the trails, dense vegetation where shrubs have grown in after the fire, and unmarked trail junctions in some places. Please check with the Gold Beach or Wild Rivers Ranger Districts before your visit for trail conditions. Additionally, you can visit the Siskiyou Mountain Club's page, a local group who performs much of the trail maintenance in wilderness areas.
