This is a one trailhead backcountry trail, so you'll be trekking it in and back out. With its 3.4 miles of walking distance it's shorter than many wilderness trails. Bayes Cabin Road is not that long but it's always magnificent to bring some emergency supplies, you never know what could happen. This backcountry trail has a total elevation difference of 1,568 feet which is about average. Some parts of Bayes Cabin Road are much higher up than other parts of the wilderness trail, so keep in mind that you may need to dress differently at different elevations. You should count on this walk taking about 3 hours, but you never know stuff could go wrong and you could get stuck so be prepared for that. At parts of the year this region sees very little rain, so do check for current fire restrictions before you go if you plan to bring a stove or make a camp fire.
