Deer Flat, Thumb Rock, and Landers Creek Loop

Deer Flat, Thumb Rock, and Landers Creek Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This is a strenuous trip, involving almost 12,000 feet of elevation change and the crossing of four major ridge systems. Some sections of trail are steep and rough, while others are hard to find and follow. No lakes are included in the basic loop, but side trip options are easily available to Twin, Shimmy, Lilypad, and Landers lakes, and more distant Foster, Lion, and Union lakes can be added with a little more effort. You are rewarded with solitude and incomparable scenery once you get away from the thoroughfare along Swift Creek."
