Maple Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Starting from a former car campground, now a picnic area, hike north along Sweat Creek into a cool forest, coming to a junction at a stile at 0.1 mile. You’ll be returning on the left-hand trail, so head right on the Sweat Creek Basin Trail, briefly following a power-line swath and fence line before turning northward. Start climbing an at-times open, at-times steep ridge that’s cloaked in wildflowers in spring. Balsamroot, lupine, cinquefoil, daisy, arnica, desert parsley, larkspur, shooting star—the list goes on!"
