This trail is steep & extremely difficult to find because of all the fallen logs across the trails. It's easy to get lost! It is in need of some serious trail work!

This area is very beautiful! Be aware that the trail is very poorly maintained and disappears for long sections at a time. Be prepared to do a lot of bushwhacking and climbing over downed logs and avalanche debris.

I did this last summer and it is a great hike. One of my all time favorites. It actually can be done as a loop but regardless of which side of Trail Creek you start on the trail is difficult to find in places so be prepared to just find your own way. The trail(s) dead end at the headwaters of Trail Creek so just keep going up the canyon and you can't get lost.. There is a saddle separating the two headwaters. It is an easy day hike or would be a great place to camp and do some additional exploring.
