The Beartrack Trail (Sheep Creek Trail) climbs nearly 3,000 feet from Rock Creek Canyon to the 1 0,000-foot Silver Run Plateau. Along the way are great views up and down the Rock Creek Canyon, including the surrounding peaks of Mount Maurice, Tolman Mountain, and Black Pyramid Mountain. The hike begins just west of the burn area from the 2000 Willie Fire. The trail then crosses the windswept alpine plateau and connects with the Silver Run Plateau Trail into the West Fork drainage—Hike 1 8—an optional 8-mile shuttle hike. Bring warm clothing and be prepared for changes in weather. The hike across the plateau to Timberline Lake (Hike 21 ) is a popular 1 7-mile overnight shuttle hike.
