The Varmint Camp Trail is a pleasant hike or bike ride for a hot summer’s day. The trail passes through a thick deciduous forest lined with big-leaf maple, and ends in an old-growth forest of Shasta red fir. Beginning on Forest Rd. #6205, the trail climbs gradually for the first mile, traversing Varmint Creek. At present, creek crossings do not have bridges; expect to get wet and muddy. Use special caution at high water as crossing may become hazardous. After crossing the creek, the trail climbs steeply for 1.5 miles through a dense conifer forest. The trail crosses a mountain meadow filled with wild onion. A good display of wildflowers may be seen in this area in midsummer

Caution should be exercised if using a motorcycle or bike on this trail. The tread is narrow and rocky in places. The trail ends on Forest Rd. #830

Directions: From Prospect: Follow the Prospect ­ Butte Falls Hwy. 1 mile to Red Blanket Rd. Turn left onto Red Blanket Rd. and go 0.3 mile to Forest Rd. #6205. Turn left onto Rd. #6205 and continue 10.5 miles to the trailhead sign. Parking is available for 1-2 vehicles in a turnout directly across from the trailhead.
