Often over shadowed by the neighboring Rubicon Trail, Fordyce Creek Trail
is never to be out done.  While most would consider Fordyce Creek Trail to
be the most difficult in the Sierra's, nobody will argue it's ability to flood a
vehicle with 35" tires, on a low flow day.  On high flow days the creek
remains impassable.

Fordyce Creek flow rate is controlled by Pacific Gas & Electric and can
change greatly, without warning and very quickly, stranding vehicle's behind
river crossings.  Because of this it is recommended that the trail should be
run during the California Association of 4WD Clubs annual
Sierra Trek.  
During this time the flow rate is slowed to a safe 50cfs and no vehicle is left
