Lower Gedney Creek

Lower Gedney Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"At first glance the Gedney Creek drainage is of little immediate interest to the hiker—there are no obvious attractions or scenic landmarks along its lower miles.

Yet this lightly used route offers its own diversions and delivers a sense of seclusion not found on other stream-bottom trails in the area. Its quiet beauty is borne in the hush of steep brush fields and the sight of twisted snags—a landscape still recovering in the aftermath of the 1934 Pete King Fire."
