Trail Information

This ride on Hellhole Canyon Trail begins at the south end of the trail at the trailhead on Forest Road 1N02. The trail is currently designed primarily for foot and horse use, so trail width, grades and tight turning curves present challenges to the rider’s skill and strength. The trail winds through grassy glades, oak woodlands and shady stands of mixed conifer. Many picnic spots are scattered along the way and a nice place to camp lies at the north end at Hellhole Canyon. The best seasons are spring, early summer and fall. Be sure to watch out for hikers.


From Covelo:
Travel on Highway 162 approximately 1.2 miles east to Eel River Work Center, turn on Forest Road N02 and travel approximately 4 miles northeast to the trail head. The trail head is a turnout on the left side of the road and is marked only with a hiker symbol sign.
