Comanche Creek Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The valley of Comanche Creek is quintessential Valle Vidal, a region defi ned by open and expansive grasslands, shimmering creeks, and islands of conifer forest. This route follows Comanche Creek 2 miles before climbing to grand views from the mesas above. Near the site of La Belle, a once-thriving goldmining community near the head of La Belle Creek, the route follows the traces of abandoned roads back to Comanche Creek.
Rumor has it that these were the very roads taken by Tom Ketchum, one of the last train robbers, when he rode from his hangout in Valle Vidal to Saturday night dances in La Belle, his identity unknown to the local townsfolk. Note that carrying a map, along with a compass or GPS receiver, will be helpful in navigating this trip."
