Cross Creek Trail

Cross Creek Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hike along an undulating, rocky trail through a forest lush with wildflowers and berry bushes. Spruce, fir, lodgepole pine, and aspen grow amid house-sized boulders draped in moss and lichen.

Cross Creek tumbles where the land drops steeply and slows into pools where fish tease anglers. Past the bridge over Cross Creek, the trail winds through a lush forest to rocky terrain with views of the tip of Mount of the Holy Cross. Ferns almost hide the trail through an aspen forest. Enjoy your lunch next to a grass-lined little lake that momma and baby ducks enjoy."
