This trail is basically a ridge top trail and provides spectacular views. The trailhead for the Kelsey National Recreation Trail leads into the Siskiyou Wilderness and provides access to Bear Lakes. The Kelsey Trail once stretched from Crescent City inland to Fort Jones. It was a main supply route in the 1850's for the fort and brought much needed supplies to the miners in the goldfields. Water is scarce on this trail. Not recommended for stock use. The turn-off is labeled "Bear Lakes."

Note: A wildfire burned through the portion of the Siskiyou Wilderness accessed by the Elbow Springs trailhead in 2017. You may encounter numerous fallen trees along the Kelsey Trail.
