West Fork of Clear Creek Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike is a loop of the West Fork Clear Creek drainage. You cannot get lost here since the gully that forms this drainage is narrow and compact. There is no real trailhead and the trail is faint at times.

This is National Forest land where your dog can be off-leash while exploring the scents and diversions created by the many rivulets that join at the bottom of the gulch to form the creek. More likely than not you and your dog will be alone for the duration of the hike since this hike is very much off the beaten track."
