    The McKittrick Canyon Trail connects to other trails and leads to some backcountry camping areas. The part of the trail I took leads 2.3 miles to Pratt Cabin and back. The trail is not overly steep and leads through some spectacular scenery.

    Equipment: Good walking shoes, sunscreen, a hat, plenty of water

    Trailhead

    It is always good to thoroughly read the information at the trailhead. It will give you an idea how long and hard the trail is. It helps orient you to the area and other trails so you don’t make a wrong turn, and it provides warnings if any dangerous wildlife has been spotted in the area.

    The Smith Spring Trail is a 2.3 mile loop that starts at the Frijole Ranch. The ¼ mile to Manzanita Spring is easy, paved, and wheelchair accessible. The rest of the trail is steep in spots and has occasional rough footing.

    The McKittrick Canyon Trail had signs along the way to help ensure you stayed on the right trail and to give you an idea how far along the trail you had gone.
