Frontier Creek Professional Review and Guide
"Day hikers can follow this route as far as they like. Backpackers have a host of options. This is a good trip for beginners. From the sign at the trailhead, the Frontier Creek Trail heads north across the meadow. Within 0.5 mile, it crosses Frontier Creek and enters lodgepole pine forest, where it begins a long, almost unnoticeable ascent. The lodgepole pine gives way to Douglas-fir and Engelmann spruce after about 5 miles. You reach the signed junction with Cougar Pass Trail at 7 miles, 0.5 mile beyond a small meadow. From here, the trail continues upstream, with occasional good views of the narrowing and increasingly dramatic canyon of Frontier Creek. The trail ends at 9 miles at a ford where the canyon turns sharply east."
