Big Creek is beautiful! The water was high and moving very fast due to all the rain and snow melt and it was so clean and clear. I spotted several places that would make great swimming holes and picnic spots and the campgrounds at the end looked very welcoming. This trail would make a nice outing for families with kids and/or older folks. I look forward to seeing what it's like during the warmer months and hopefully do some swimming and camping!
