Fish Hook Trail

Fish Hook Trail follows the ridge top of Fish Hook Peak with many splendid views of the Indigo Drainage and the Kalmiopsis Wilderness. Wildlife, such as elk, deer, bear and cougar is abundant along this trail. In addition, portions of the Silver Fire burn of 1987 are still visible. The mosaic of the fire can be seen with the pattern showing how some portions of the land were lightly torched, while others were ravaged by the burn.
