Hanan Trail: This historic trail accesses the roadless country found between Coffeepot Springs and the confluence of Boulder Springs with the Sycan River. The trail passes through a variety of environments ranging from stands of mature mixed conifers, open upland meadows, scab-rock flats, quaking aspen groves, rimrocks, and dense stands of lodgepole pine. It was the earliest transportation link into the upper Sycan River drainage. The Hanan Trail crosses the divide between the Great Basin and the Pacific Ocean drainages on Bear Creek Rim. Distant scenic vistas are to be found from the trail at the summit of Bear Creek Rim. For approximately half of its length the Hanan Trail follows the upper Sycan River, a designated National Wild and Scenic River.
