The trail follows an old logging road, ascending through a mixed forest of oak, maple, and pine. As the trail

ascends, it winds around to a southern exposure where it is rocky and exposed. Pass the Salt Gulch Trail on the

right. Peltier Trail now crosses a small seasonal creek and the trail forks several hundred feet past a grassy area.

Take the left fork down the hill (the right fork ends abruptly). The trail is shaded, somewhat steep, and requires

careful footing. Cross Paige Boulder Creek and continue uphill through a shady forest. At the top of the ridge,

it descends quickly and ends at the Kanaka Peak Loop Trail.

Turn left at the Kanaka Peak Loop Trail and cross Paige Boulder Creek again. Across the creek is Peltier Valley

Road. Turn left to return to your car at the Peltier Trailhead.

Directions:

Take Kennedy Memorial Drive to Paige Bar Road, then turn right onto Peltier Valley Road. The beginning of the

Peltier Trail is located approximately 2.7 miles from Peltier Bridge Campground. The road is open from late spring

to late fall depending on the weather. It is unpaved and crosses a shallow, seasonal stream. A high clearance

vehicle is recommended. When the road is closed, park at the campground and hike up the road to the Peltier

Trailhead.
