Onahu Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This hike takes us over to the verdant west side of Rocky Mountain National Park. The trail begins in the massive Kawuneeche Valley, separating the high peaks of the Continental Divide and the Never Summer Wilderness. The trail leads through thick pine forests flecked with wildflowers and boulders.
A northern stretch along the Long Meadows area affords dazzling views of the Divide, and there is a long descent through handsome forests guided by the enchanting music of a primitive creek."
--Steve Johnson & David Weinstein, Best Loop Hikes Colorado (The Mountaineers Books).
"Alas, a long loop hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. Believe me, loop day hikes are hard to come by in the park. This hike is a quiet walk in the woods, with only the “creaking” of fallen lodgepole pines to break your concentration and give you a little spook. By combining Onahu Creek, Tonahutu and Green Mountain trails, you form a circle through some amazing scenery. This is a long, uncrowded walk with a variety of creeks, streams, cascades, aspen trees, and more. Be sure to bring along a buddy and plenty of supplies."
