Trail Description
About this trail
Starting from the top on Bommer Ridge (trail marker #4), after a mile on the descending ridge, you arrive on the canyon bottom (also where the singletrack Old Emerald Trail branches left). The next 1.5 miles of travel down-canyon is along a more moderate grade. At 4.2 miles the trail bends sharply downward to gate 13 at the bottom.

Review: Emerald Canyon is currently closed south of trail marker #14 due to "significant trail damage". Your options are to return up Emerald Canyon, or head left up "Old Emerald Trail" (which is steep single track), or head right up "Old Emerald Falls Trail"
