Most attractions along the river can be reached by foot, mountain bike or horseback. Trailheads begin at Hog Lake Plateau, Iron Canyon, the Paynes Creek Recreation Area (Bass Pond), Jelly's Ferry and multiple trailheads surrounding the Paynes Creek Wetlands. The Paynes Creek Wetlands trail systems and Hog Lake Plateau allow for great springtime wildlife viewing. The Yana Trail, with trailheads at Perry Riffle and Jelly's Ferry, is a great way to explore the backcountry. Most trails are rugged and unmarked and encourage self-discovery. Please remember to close any gates behind you after you pass through.
