Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"Porcupine Creek, one of the upper Green River’s major tributaries, drains a remote, U-shaped hanging valley of exceptional beauty. Groves of spire-topped spruce, meadows rich with tall grasses and colorful wildflowers, bold crags and avalanche-scarred canyon walls, and the overall verdant setting combine to make scenes in Porcupine Creek canyon more reminiscent of the Cascade Range than the Wind Rivers. Despite Porcupine Creek’s beauty the canyon is seldom the destination of backcountry travelers, most of whom are usually en route to fish-filled lakes and high summits. Instead, this trail is usually used as a scenic leg of a loop trip originating at Green River Lakes, in combination with the Highline Trail and the New Fork or Doubletop Mountain Trail." Read more
