Pine and fir forests fill the valley of Union Creek, providing a cool retreat from the heat of summer for you and your furry friend. The trail follows the splashing creek upstream, sometimes climbing high above the water, sometimes swinging low along the creekside. There are open meadows to explore and shadow-laden forests in which to revel. Deer and elk browse through the valley, and birds swarm around the clusters of berry bushes and bug-rich creek bed.
