Hiking Snagtooth Mountain

This 4.8 mile trail runs from upper Quartz Creek Trail to the Boundary Trail crossing Forest Road 9341 at 2.1 miles south of Boundary Trail #1 and 2.7 miles northwest of Quartz Creek Trail. This trail is used as an access route to the Boundary Trail (above Forest Road 9341) and to the Quartz Creek Trail below the road.

Heading north from Forest Road 9341 this is a pleasant hike that starts out along Snagtooth Creek and ascends up to the upper parts of Snagtooth Mountain where the trail intersects Boundary Trail north of Snagtooth Mountain and west of Hat Rock.

To the south and east of Forest Road 9341, Snagtooth Trail passes through three logged over areas before joining Quartz Creek Trail. While the trail is steep, descending 1465 feet in 1 mile, it provides the quickest way to reach the upper Quartz Creek Trail.
