The North Fork Trail, an A-hike to Deserted Village will be 5.75 miles with an elevation gain of 975 feet going at a moderate pace. This trail drops abruptly into the North Fork Canyon from the parking lot and follows the creek upstream. After about 3 miles, we'll be above an open meadow where the remains of the old Mateland family line shack were located. This was also the location of a resort camp called Deserted Village, built by Fred Sprague in the 1890s. This hike is limited to 12 people. We'll be hiking at a moderate pace, especially if it's hot.
