Phi Kappa Trail #54


This trail can be accessed from Phi-Kappa Road #501 from Trail Creek Road #208 and it ends at the old mine at the head of Phi-Kappa Canyon.

A good trail for beginners, this was once an old mining road. Visitors will see fir, spruce, lodge pole pine and scattered aspen. On the left side of the canyon are the results of numerous avalanches, leaving chutes of very short growth down the slopes. At the end of the trail is an old mining cabin and mine sitting picturesquely on an open grassy hillside, with a meadow surrounded by wildflowers and scattered limber pine. Visitors should watch closely for signs of deer, mountain goats and several varieties of birds.
