Chimney Canyon has to be one of the most overlooked areas in the Swell. From Hidden Splendor, it is a somewhat hefty 7-8 miles one way to the confluence of the North and South Forks of Chimney Canyon. This is more than most will want to tackle for a day hike, though it makes a very pleasant overnight trip. There are some old mining ruins at the confluence, and a good spring, making it a great place to setup base camp and explore the upper forks unencumbered by heavy packs. When wonder dog and I visited, we didn't see footprints or other signs of people after the first couple of miles.

In late spring or early fall, bugs can be a problem.
