Nelson Trail

Note: all info and pictures are from before the Castle Fire.


The Nelson Trail begins just outside of Camp Nelson and offers a peaceful hike through the Belknap Complex of Giant Sequoia Groves, which includes McIntyre Grove, Wheel Meadow Grove and Bear Creek Grove. The trail goes all the way to Quaking Aspen by Ponderosa, a round-trip of just over 7 miles.
