Day 90: Belden (Mile 1289)-Myrtle Flat (Mile 1296); 7 miles

We spent the first half of the day in the tiny town of Belden, which is tucked into a narrow canyon next to the Feather River.

At the Belden trail angels’ cabin, which is appropriately named Little Haven, we took care of all the small tasks that had been piling up.

Soon, though, it was time to hit the trail again. We walked uphill out of the valley for a few miles. The climb was mostly forested, although some areas were burned and exposed. Even late in the day, the climb was hot.
