Details

Gold Creek Lake is especially beautful.  The rushing waters of Gold Creek parallel the trail and provide waterfalls, cascades and a few creek crossings.Within 75 yards of the trailhead the trail forks at a register and sign.  Proceed east on the right fork. The clear trail is overgrown in places, but there are many clearings and overlook areas along the way.Soon cross a bridge and continue up the valley.  Two miles from the tailhead there is a creek crossing on a large log, followed closely by an easier crossing over rocks. The final mile to the lake uses several switchbacks and passes through an area of fallen trees, just before reaching beautiful Gold Creek lake.



Lunch at the lake and return on the same route.
