Fish Creek Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Fish Creek runs down a wide, gently sloping canyon from a point near Skyline Drive to the Scofield Reservoir. The canyon is popular with hunters because of the abundance of deer and elk in the area. Deer are everywhere, but the elk seem to prefer grazing in the large, open meadows high above the south bank of the creek. Take along a pair of binoculars and stop occasionally to scan these grassy meadows.

If you are attentive you are almost certain to see at least a few of the magnificent animals. The creek runs from west to east, and you will notice a tremendous difference in vegetation between the north and south facing sides of the canyon. The north facing side is covered with aspens and conifers, interspaced with lush green meadows. The south facing side, on the other hand, is sage brush country with scarcely a tree to be found. Unfortunately the trail spends most of its time on the shadeless south facing side of the canyon."
