Emerald Lake and Hoodoo Canyon Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Sherman Creek starts in the high meadows of Jungle Hill and Columbia Peak, its South Fork in the high basins beneath Snow Peak, Bald Mountain, and the Barnaby Buttes, and together they drain a large area of the southern Kettles. Paralleling SR 20 for a good portion of its way to the Columbia River, Sherman Creek cuts through larch groves and cottonwood flats, cascades over ledges and careens through chasms. It’s a sight to see, but not when you’re buzzing by at 50 miles per hour. This trail enables you to enjoy it safely, at your own pace."
