Naegelin Canyon is a story of two trails. Beginning in the south off Young Highway, the trail is a tame dirt track that eventually follows a seasonal drainage through a dense forest. The northern third of the trail narrows into a shelf road steeply climbing the southwestern slopes of Colcord Mountain. The trail has a loose rock and dirt surface requiring 4WD for traction. This portion of the trail sees little maintenance and has very few places for passing oncoming traffic. One washout across the trail is deceptively deep.  

The southern and middle sections of the trail have a handful of shady dispersed campsites. Most have fire rings and are suitable for tent camping. There are no campsites on the northern part of the trail past an old cattle corral.
