The one way hiking trail is a 3.2 km long adventure. The hiking trail starts from Highway #93 and, right away, begins going downhill. The trail continues exploring along the north ridge of Sinclair Canyon eventually dropping down into Sinclair Creek.
Hikers can return the same way they came from or.. another available option is to continue along the connector trail to the parking lot of the hot springs. From the hot spring parking lot hikers can, either, stop in and relax at the hot springs or walk back along Hwy #93 to their vehicle.
Juniper Trail is a moderately difficult hike. Individuals should be well prepared with water and good hiking shoes. The trail is an earthy path. A single track path with exposed tree roots, high ridges and exposed rocks. The trail is full of climbs and descents, some hills harder than others. However it is a well maintained and marked trail route.
