West Fork of Rock Creek

This is a great trail after a gravel drive a few miles. Very scenic with a short walk through a burn area. I have climbed Whitetail Peak which is the mountain featured in the overview. Can be done in one day, but better in 2 days. A rock scramble up the left facing ridge.

Beautiful hike. I recommend setting up camp about a mile and a half down the trail once you get to the lake. Then, take the trail about two miles further to Island Lake. Great fishing, as well.

This is a great hike. I would have said its an easier trail... With a mild grade to the ridge. But I would say that this time of year the ap is correct to call it moderate, It's December with a lot of snow and ice. Spikes might help you go faster. I completed in about 90 minutes in yaks. Didn't need my poles bit a few others on the trail were using them.

This is a great short hike to a beautiful water fall. The drive up the canyon is as nice as the hike. The trail is paved and great for kids.

We didn't have any hiking gear and didn't need it.

Lava Lake (Cascade Creek)

My wife and I made this beautiful hike later in the year before the snow came. The first mile is a steady increase, the second mile is a little flatter and the last mile is a steady increase. The trail is in great with 2 steam crossings without a bridge.

The hike itself follows Cascade Creek and is beautiful and green... their aren't many views on the hike but the view of Lava Lake is beautiful. Going later in the year provided some nice snow capped mountains in the background.

My wife and I did the whole hike in 2.5 hours.
