Dry Creek

Dry Creek Professional Review and Guide

"Saunter up a quiet valley floor sprinkled with groves of evergreen giants at the foot of the abrupt slopes of Howe Ridge. Following alongside a creek that at times disappears into a subterranean channel, marvel at rippling waters that yield to naked creekbed. While roads lie not far away, the valley exudes a feeling of remoteness and stillness. But look around, for these lush woods are anything but still, harboring a cornucopia of critters from flittering wrens to wintering elk."

"Early season hike through dense forest with a good possibility of seeing a band of Roosevelt elk. Crossing Bourbon Creek and Dry Creek could be difficult during times of high water. Snowdrifts seem to hang on later in the spring in the Wind River drainage than they do in other areas of comparable altitude."

"The Dry Creek Trail #194 parallels Dry Creek and passes through pockets of old-growth timber. It starts out flat and then climbs; your total elevation gain is nearly 400 feet. The end of the route is after Bourbon Creek, at the junction with Trail #158."
