Description

Keeton Trail passes through a variety of dense and open mixed conifer forest with pockets of ponderosa pine. There are areas of recent and older timber harvest intermixed with unlogged areas. After relatively gentle rolling terrain for the first ¾ mile, the trail begins to descend steeply into the Keeton Creek drainage. A steep climb follows the crossing of Keeton Creek, then another descent along an abandoned road into the Fry Creek drainage to meet the north end of Fry Trail No. 816. From the east end of Keeton Trail, Forest Road No. 2630 is a steep 2 mile climb up Fry Trail and Barnhouse Campground is approximately 3½ miles west on Fry and Barnhouse Trails. Closed Forest Road #1280 also leads to Barnhouse Campground from a short distance up Fry Trail. Trail is maintained every year to primitive standards.
