High Creek Canyon


This wilderness trail winds through a riparian forest and parallels a booming mountain stream. It progresses into a wide glacial valley, evntually opening into sub-alpine meadows covered with wildflowers. The trail culminates at 9,000 feet at High Creek Lake, a glacial cirque lake surrounded by towering cliffs. Hikers enjoy numerous waterfalls during the last 2 miles. This is also a popular trail for horseback riding.


Tony Grove Lake Loop, see the Naomi Peak trail description first.
