Bean Creek Basin

Bean Creek Basin Professional Review and Guide

"Mount Stuart dominates the eastern half of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, towering so high above its surrounding peaks that it can be seen from trails throughout the region. Bean Creek is one of those trails affording views of the spectacular rock slabs of Stuart.

But there’s more to this trail than mountain views. Indeed, there are splendid views of Ingalls Peak and other summits in the Stuart Range. But it’s the little things that make Bean Creek special. A plethora of blooming plants—wildflowers of all varieties—grace the valley. And an army of wild critters calls the basin home, from mule deer to deer mice, from gray jays to pileated woodpeckers."
