Took the Creekside Trail to the Hemlock Trail Head. Some good elevation and awesome views overlooking the Hemlock groves. Trail was in good shape despite the heavy rains last week, some steep climbing but proved no problem for the kids. Great first hike of 2016. Bonus: Perfect wooden bench at the top of the ridge, nice place to rest and overlook the ravine.

Hike it as part of 10 mile hike in Clear Creek. It is then a Moderate hike.

note: this trail is part of CMP and is located in Clear Creek MP off of US-33 on Clear Creek Rd.

Very nice HR trail. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the wild life and scenery. Beautiful rock formations. A must see in the area.
