Lower South Fork Trail - Beginning at Forest Road 37 (Access #1), the Lower South Fork Trail gradually descends along the river, crossing several small creeks. The first bridge you come to is over Nicolas Creek and a large dispersed site can been seen from the trail at this point. Continuing down, the trail passes through thick evergreen forest where many sugar pines can be seen. This can make the South Fork Trail a wonderfully pleasant place on a hot summer afternoon.

Areas of vine maple and alder make use of the sunlight that streams from small openings in the forest canopy. At the confluence of the South Fork and Imnaha Creek there is a nice over look and the South Fork Dam can be seen. At this point the trail turns abruptly east and follows Imnaha Creek to the trailhead. NOTE: There is a cattle gate about mid way, and bikes must be lifted over. Please use caution in this area.
