Hero: Cherry Creek Summit
small-sr Icon

Located entirely within the Humbolt National Forest, Cherry Creek Summit is a narrow mountain road that winds through scenic canyons and rock formations. Most of this dirt trail is surrounded by pine and cedar forests, with small spring-fed creeks flowing throughout. 

The road's east end begins with a one-lane bridge and continues along private property on one side for a short distance. From east to west, the trail ascends into the mountain, becoming more of a shelf road, limiting the ability of oncoming traffic to pass safely. 

Multiple pull-offs along the road have open camping areas, including FR 59411, which has the Cherry Creek primitive campground. There is also a large area at the summit with room for multiple rigs to set up camp.

Inclement weather, like heavy rain or snow, could render this trail impassable.
