“A little over 2 miles of steep downhill with awesome views!”— Devin Cegelis
From Forest Road 105 Little Yeager Canyon Trail #533 goes west along a ridge. It then descends a steep series of switchbacks into Yeager Canyon. Yeager Canyon supports an attractive riparian corridor, where deciduous hardwoods create a canopy of shade. Fall paints the canyon in brilliant shades of yellow and gold and is an excellent time of year to explore this and other trails in the Mingus Mountain area. Fortunate visitors may spot deer, elk, and a variety of birds. Black bears also make their home in this area. Rolled rocks along the trail show where bears have passed by, turning stones in search of grubs and other insects.
Portions of this trail may be overgrown with brush.
