Bucking Mule Recreation Trail
Vistas of Devils Canyon and the Bucking Mule Falls reached on a 3 mile hike on a well maintained level trail. You continue on an extended hike down and through the Devil's Canyon for a two day trip.
Porcupine Falls Hike
The trail down to Porcupine Falls is steeper and rougher than the
Bucking Mule Trail. However, it is worth the work. At the bottom of
the trail is the pool formed by Bald Mountain Creek. Gold miners
packed a dredge down to the pool in their search for gold. You can
still see some of the old equipment. Bring your lunch and a swimsuit
for a fun afternoon!
