Description

This trail alternates very steep pitches with gentle benches following a ridge through mostly open, grassy ponderosa pine forest with impressive views of Black Canyon Wilderness from the prominent benches on the ridge followed by the trail. Kelsey Trail has received limited maintenance for a number of years, and is currently being reconsidered for addition to the regular maintenance program. The trail is not signed at trailhead or junction with Black Canyon Trail No. 820. The route is poorly marked and is not maintained annually.
