Porcupine Basin Trail begins on the north side of Beaver Creek Road 4106 and is signed. Hiking along a side hill there are few glimpses of the Beaver Creek Road 4106 and mountain to the south. The trail is under a forest canopy until reaching the talus slope. The talus is situated on a steep side hill. Do use caution when crossing.
