Hanan Trail

Sweet alpine trail that follows the Sycan River to it's head waters. This trail is an out and back trail with trailheads at both ends. The trail crosses from the Pacific drainage to the Great Basin drainage. Trail head is at about 6500 feet and has a peak elevation of over 7000'. Lots of springs along trail and camping at trailheads. Very remote. GET SOME!!


ps - Fremont Forest website has more info.

Summary:
In the interest of sanity it is advisable to disregard the previous review's assessment of this trail. The trail starts off easily enough, but eventually it takes you to a few areas where it is very difficult to follow. It's wrong to even call it a trail at that point, as it becomes a route marked by flagging, old tree blazes, occasional cairns, wood posts, and downed trees that have obviously been cut with a chainsaw. I literally spent hours trying to find my way along the first 3.5 miles. Much of the flagging was down, I came to slowly discover. I hung it back up where I found it down but even still it would be very difficult to follow. In addition to this, there are countless downed trees along the way which make for slow going.

The scenery isn't very spectacular (these forests are very unhealthy and mostly dying from pine beetles), the ride is slow and often in very soft powder dirt (late July) and through rocky flats and cow pies. I only rode the first 3.75 miles until I gladly came across another trail that got out of there. Maybe I missed the best part but I was happy to be on something you could call a trail that wasn't a complete waste of time. If you had GPS you'd be set, but otherwise don't bother with this trail unless you're already in the area.

Recommended Route:
Somewhere else!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Fremont National Trail (I believe this is what it's called) -- follows the edge of Winter Ridge above Summer Lake valley. Excellent views, neat forest, lots of springs! Check it out.
