Trail Canyon is a small reservoir approximately 1.5 surface acres with a maximum depth of about 20 feet. The shoreline is lined with dense vegetation in places, but there is adequate access for shore angling. The pond is fed by spring flow and surface flows from Rock Creek, and water quality is usually very good. Rainbow trout are stocked, with the best fishing generally from May through October, although late July and August can be slow. Fly-fishing, throwing small spinners, or using baits such as salmon eggs or Power Bait can be effective. There are no improved campsites, but camping is allowed at primitive sites within the Inyo National Forest. Road access is best in late spring through fall, but may become inaccessible in the winter because of snowfall. Access to this area via the Chiatovich Creek Road is no longer possible due to private land closures.
