The name Tamanous derives from local Native American's who initiated their young in their area by sending them on vision quests, called "Ta-mah-no-ous."

This trail is a short one; at just over a half-mile, it functions primarily as a feeder trail for avid Pacific Crest Trail hikers.

But if a 2,650 mile hike isn't on your agenda, you can shorten your trip to Tamanous to a day hike. The trail also accesses Table Mountain via the PCT North, making for a 14-mile day hike--a solid day of hiking.
