You’re likely to encounter hikers, bikers, and climbers of every stripe throughout the expansive South Fork Campbell Creek Valley. Yet even when teeming with people, this alpine playground retains a sense of space. Its main thoroughfare is the Powerline Trail, running 6 miles from Glen Alps to Powerline Pass, with small side trails splitting off every few miles. Come visit a high pass, tackle a nearby peak, or simply enjoy a few miles of fresh air and glimpse a moose or two.
