Below the Hecla Junction Campground a ¾ mile foot trail leads downstream along the shoreline to Seidel's Suckhole, which is a great place to watch and photograph whitewater rafting in the summer and offers excellent fishing in the spring and summer.

Lone Pine Recreation Site has a designated river trail approximately 1/2 mile in length that begins near the restrooms and picnic site on the east end. This trail is used for wildlife and river viewing as well as fishing access.

McIntyre Hills Wilderness Study Area (WSA) can be accessed from the Five Points Campground. A trail begins between campsites #4 and #5, but much of the McIntyre Hills WSA is comprised of undesignated, or social, trails. A trail map on the entrance station shows the trail's alignment.
