“A quiet, creek-side riding experience set in a hidden canyon filled with geologic wonder.
— David Lingle
Henry Creek Trailhead has limited parking, enough space for 2-4 cars. Please keep the gate closed.
Henry Creek Trail can be ridden in two ways. As an out-and-back from the Henry Creek Trailhead on the Williams Lake Road, or as a shuttle when coupled with Henry Creek Trail #6128 Upper.
There are several shallow creek crossings and a few fence crossings - please leave the gates as you found them.
From the Henry Creek Trailhead, the trail steeply crosses over a gravelly, sometimes loose old road. After the first of several shallow creek crossings, the trail levels out and climbs more gently.
About a mile above the Trailhead, the old road forks, continuing to parallel Henry Creek. Another 1/2 mile up, the trail becomes singletrack. From here, the canyon narrows, and the gentle climbing continues. This is where the riding starts to become a little more fun.
The best place to turn around is at "The Wall" or just above these sheer rock faces. You can continue to climb Henry Creek Trail from here, but you'll likely be hike-a-biking and not riding for several hundred vertical feet.
The return back down Henry is fast and fun. This a great, short ride close to Salmon.
Watch for Stinging Nettle in the more vegetated areas of the trail as they're out to get you!
