"The Pebble Creek Trail is a 12-mile trail with trailheads at the Pebble Creek Campground and the Warm Creek picnic area. This hike begins at the Pebble Creek Campground. The forested trail, interspersed with small meadows, steadily climbs between 10,000-foot mountain peaks. This trail may be hiked as a 12-mile shuttle hike. For the one-way hike, it is recommended to begin from the Warm Creek Trailhead, which gains the majority of the elevation in the first 1.5 miles." Read more

"The Pebble Creek Trail is a 1 2-mile trail with trailheads at Warm Creek and the Pebble Creek Campground (Hike 73). This hike begins at the Warm Creek trailhead and climbs to the Upper Meadows in a glacial valley at the north end of Barronette Peak. From the wildflower-covered meadow are panoramic views of the Absaroka Range and many of its peaks. The trail parallels Pebble Creek through the scenic valley for miles before reentering the forest. This trail may be combined with Hike 73 for a 1 2-mile shuttle hike." Read more

"A mostly downhill hike through the gorgeous meadows along Pebble Creek. On the map it looks like the Pebble Creek Trail follows the Northwest Entrance Road, but it’s actually hidden from view. It goes through spectacular meadows along a totally natural stream, and it’s a mostly downhill, 12-mile hike." Read more
