Little Elk Creek Professional Review and Guide
"There are some beautiful views in the highest part of the Snake River Range up this creek. No livestock or motor vehicles are allowed. Little Elk Creek is not a trail for the weak or inexperienced. It’s a long, steep 4 miles. From the trail’s beginning at 5,960 feet to your destination, a nameless mountain at 9,200 feet, it’s a 3,240-foot climb.
The first third of the hike is forested, and the beginning is deceptively gentle, but as soon as you pass by Conglomerate Canyon 1 mile from the trailhead, the route becomes more difficult."
