Kingfisher Trail

Trail started out pretty wide but was filled with lots of spider webs. I don't think many people have been on this recently. It then narrowed significantly to the point where there was a bend and the trail could not be seen! We just guessed and headed left,up a hill and then found a blue blaze. Once up in elevation the trail was clean. Came across a box turtle in the middle of the trail and also near the end, saw a doe and her fawn side by side. The rail goes close by the backyard of a blue house, then stops abruptly just past in a densely wooded area. No further blazes to be found and the blazes are not on the trees in the opposite direction. So just forged our own trail down the slope back to the ridge where we figured we would connect back to the trail and we did.

Beautiful trail. I only saw one other group of people. Go to the East Quarry Overlook, its amazing. Close enough to home/far enough way to feel in the woods.

Great bushwhack. several unnamed falls on the way down. Also up stream from Sixty-foot falls are other falls to see. Worth the trip. Many other hiking opportunities. Redding NF campground has showers.

Me and my 4yr old son, backpacked it in 2 days. We went during the fall after some rain. There is some sketchy water crossings after good rain. One of the most beautiful places to spend time at, camping along river makes for amazing sounds and scenery! We will do this every year maybe twice a year , its that nice!!!

One of the best backpacking trips I've ever been on. The mosquitos were a little heavy handed, but still the most gorgeous place I've been in a while.
