Hike - 10:15 am - 12:15 pm

Home - 1:00 pm

Directions: Packard Cyn Trailhead, Hobble Creek Cyn

Activity: Packard Canyon to Left Fork Maple Canyon - The canyon is 16 miles one way, so we will be hiking for 1 hour up and then turning around. A downloaded map is important for this hike - either Gaia or All Trails. There are many side trails and splits. It's a steady climb most of the way in, with some steep spots. The last little steep push to our turn around spot flattens to beautiful mountain and valley views. It took us 1 hour and 10 min to reach from the trailhead. Going back was faster and almost all downhill. All Trails Trip Report
