Navajo Peak-Leche Creek Trails Shuttle Hike

Navajo Peak-Leche Creek Trails Shuttle Hike Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The highlight of hiking these trails comes in the form of trees, and there are lots of them! Aspens—quaking visual treats of gold, yellow, and orange—come alive in late September, when fall colors are at their peak in this part of the country. This area is also a mecca for animal life, including black bear, elk, and deer. Although you can hike the trail from either direction, it’s best to start at the Navajo Peak trailhead and end at the Leche Creek trailhead because you’ll gain less elevation going south to north. A shuttle is advised, but if one isn’t available, try hiking half of the trail from either end.

From the trailhead, where there is a trail register, hike Navajo Peak Trail 577, entering the wilderness after 0.6 mile. You will hike north and then west, gradually climb past aspen groves and evergreens, then descend easy-to-moderate grades through various meadows."
