“Steep and wild - Henry Creek is classic Salmon backcountry riding.”— David Lingle
Upper Henry Creek is ridden as a shuttle by itself or in combination with Thunder Mountain, Lake Mountain, or Rattlesnake Ridge Trails.
This trail is not easy to follow: you'll need backcountry savvy, a map (that you know how to read), loaded GPS, the MTB Project mobile app, or a local (that you know how to read :P)
Access is via Lake Creek Road (028) either from the South Fork of Williams Creek or above Williams Lake.
Behind a small, brown trail marker at the saddle on the high point of the Lake Creek Road (028) is the start of Henry Creek Trail.
The first 1.5 miles of Henry is cross-country riding with some climbing that comes to the head of an open high ridge and an old two-track. Follow the two-track down briefly and head right to a cow-patch, then through it and straight down the head of the canyon on cow trails.
The trail stays near the crotch of the drainage and can be tricky to follow. Pay attention and look ahead.
