Taylor Creek Trail

Taylor Creek Trail begins at about the three mile marker on Forest Service Road 2500. This is a "backbone trail" connecting Briggs Valley recreation sites (and the Briggs Creek Trail). Seven trailheads access this trail including Burned Timber Interpretive Trail, Minnow Creek Trail, China Creek Trail, Big Pine Spur Trail, Briggs Creek Trail, Dutchy Creek Trail and Onion Way. This trail parallels Forest Service Road 2500 all the way to the south end of Briggs Valley where it comes back into the road a short distance from the Briggs Creek trailhead. Many campsites in the Briggs Valley are accessible from this trail.
