Dry Creek

Dry Creek Professional Review and Guide

"Hike a lightly traveled trail along the rocky and stump-lined shoreline of man-made Lake Cushman. Then follow an old logging road through second-growth forest to misnamed Dry Creek.
If you can safely ford it, gorgeous tracts of old growth and a nice view of the lake below await your discovery. It’s a stiff climb, but solitude is almost assuredly guaranteed.

Start by walking down a private road lined with summer cabins. Be sure to stay on the road and not to trespass on private property. At 0.4 mile Trail No. 872 begins. However, the way still travels through private parcels, including one sporting a very elaborate tree house."

Great trail. Access is unusual (this also applies to the Copper Creek trail). The causeway over the North end of Lake Cushman is damaged and there is a locked gate on the east end. Park there. The trailhead is just past the end of the causeway (about the last 30 feet are a temporary structure). Copper Creek is a few hundred or so yards more. Excellent early spring trail! Even in the rain this was an excellent experience.
