Left Fork of Huntington Canyon

Huntington Canyon is known as an off-roading, snowmobiling and fishing destination, but you can find a good hike there, too. The Left Fork of Huntington Canyon trail follows the creek of the same name. From the trailhead at Millers Flat, you start in the sagebrush and travel downhill into the trees. There are bridges to help you cross the creek in a fewspots, but be prepared to get your feet wet. At 2.7miles, the creek has a short waterfall beside some large rocks. Itís a good place to stop for lunch or rest before turning back. Remember, youíll have to go uphill to go back to the trailhead. -Nate Carlisle

Getting there: From Fairview, go 18 miles east on State Road 31. It's 30 miles west from Huntington. Turn south on Millers Flat Road and go a few more miles to the trailhead.
