This hike had way more elevation than I realized!!

I love this hike! The waterfalls are beautiful and the benches along the way are helpful when hiking with children.

Great trail for viewing streams and huge trees. Great views of Lake Cushman on way to trailhead. Not crowded on our outing.

Great hike! It had fantastic water features with plenty of beautiful photo opportunities. There was quite a bit of snow toward the Mount Ellinor trail split. Micro spikes are recommended this time of the year. Plenty of benches along the trail to stop and take in all the beauty.

You have to get to the TH 827.1 from the 827 Trail which is accessed in the Big Creek Campground. The hike up and down is a nice walk but not much to see. But when you get near the top and at the top, it is worth the hike, lots of scenic creeks. The actual name is Upper Big Creek Trail Loop #827.1.
